Earlier this week we talked about the overabundance of plastic bags in the world.  Barb Veit and Pat Helmberger are experts when it comes to plastic bags - they've been working for years to get people to reuse cloth bags.  They came in to talk about the current legislation that would lift the ban on cities banning plastic bags on their own.
