Why have some US states banned plastic bags?

This was a question at Quora. When I visited, there were two ignorant, stupid answers, so I just had to do something about it. This is what I wrote.

  1. Dr Bob Rich says:

    I am afraid the photo was of a dead dolphin. I could have used many other photos, e.g., bird carcasses cut open showing insides crammed with plastic, or a fox with its head stuck in a can, or a young whale starved to death because of plastic…
    And the other two who answered had no idea.

    Good for you, Dr. Bob. Your answer is clear, correct, informative, true and hard-hitting. I just wonder: Did they save that dolphin or did it die of starvation? I only hope more people heed what you say!
