I am a writer living in NYC. I walk a lot. I blog about the things I see when I walk - but not all the things, of course, because that would be too much and there are a lot plastic bags on the sidewalks and streets and I really don't want to write about that all the time. I might write about the bags sometimes. But I'm not hung up on the bags and tend to not notice them. In fact, I don't have any blog posts about plastic bags on the blog.
