The discussion around plastic bags and their impacts to solid waste management has gone a long way last years.

Just last month New Delhi passed a preliminary ban imposing a five-year jail term or a 100,000-rupee fine, about $2,055, on anyone caught carrying or handing out plastic bags.

That did not stop 67,000 plastics professionals from convening last week for Plastindia 2009, a five-day celebration of all things plastic. Some interesting points regarding plastic bags, waste management and the plastic industry reactions are made by Heater Timmons in New York Times, 17/2/2009. See this at:
