UN environmental chief calls for worldwide plastic bag ban

The UN environmental chief calls for a worldwide ban on platic bags. 90 billion of them went unrecycled last year. Of course, China has already banned them. (You know, China is that place with all those people, where they supposedly care less about the environment than us.) The government there says the move saves them 37 million barrels of oil.

But I thought we could just throw platic bags into the ocean and let the fish eat them...
