Abstract

Single-use plastic bags have been in the media spotlight over the past several years due to their harmful environmental impact. Key issues include accumulating waste and litter pollution. The City of Missoula should enact a bag ban due to its environmentally conscious culture. Discussed in the paper are potential barriers and examples of successful bans and how to apply them locally.
