We can argue stats and figures and culture... None of it will change the experiences that I've had with pitbulls and irresponsible dog owners. In *every* *ugly* *incident* that I've witnessed at Belltown (Regrade) dog park over the last three years that I've been a dog owner, it's been a pitbull or pit mix.

Actually, 11 bags a week sounds kind of *low* - think about how many different circumstances where purchases are tossed into a plastic bag: food to go, convenience store, drug store, produce bags inside of grocery bags... on and on.

Why are people so worked up about this issue? Well, for those of us who've traveled to other countries, we've seen what a horrible toxic mess these bags are creating on a global level.

Diving in Indonesia... Plastic bags stuck in the reef.
Hiking in Peru... Plastic bags threaded into the soil.
Remote villages in Thailand... surrounded by moats of plastic bags.

So why should we care? After all Seattle is a 'clean city' - it's about doing something on that can send a message, start a movement, continue the momentum. To try and fix this problem that's choking the planet.
