Reducing plastic bag use 'on target'
Ontario shoppers carried home 269 million fewer shopping bags in 2007 than they did in 2006.
On the other hand, they still carted off a little more than 4 billion single-use bags over the course of the year. That's 316 bags per year for every man, woman and child in the province. And fewer than one in 12 of those bags found its way into a recycling program.
