bag ban initiatives see mixed results in isles,[url=http://www.@#$%&--shoes@#$%&/]cheap @#$%&[/url]
First time Councilman Stanley Chang,[url=http://www.moncleroutlet-jackets@#$%&/]moncler outlet[/url], chairman of the Public Works and Sustainability Committee,[url=http://www.cheapoakley--sunglasses@#$%&/]oakley sunglasses cheap 90 off[/url], said he is in favor of further talks about a ban. But Chang said he has not decided whether to hold hearings on Bill 43.
Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle said his administration has recommended a fact finding forum to bring business representatives and interested parties together to discuss Bill 43 and its potential impact.
The bill includes an exemption for businesses earning $1 million or less in gross sales,[url=]sac burberry[/url]. City Department of Environmental Services Director Tim Steinberger said the bill also does not prevent individuals from buying plastic bags.
Steinberger has noted that plastic bags make efficient fuel for the HPOWER garbage to energy plant.
"Plastic in any form has a high energy conversion value with minimum residue, making it more favorable feed stock than even paper products,[url=]discount true religion jeans[/url]," Steinberger said in a letter to the Council in November. In addition, HPOWER has scrubbers that clean the smoke emissions of toxic gases,[url=$%&/]babyliss pro nano titanium[/url], city and state officials said.
Some food and chemical industry representatives said they are against a ban and recommend recycling plastic,[url=]abercrombie kids[/url], as done in several other cities.
But Suzanne Frazer,[url=http://www.ferragamo-shoes-outlet@#$%&/]salvatore ferragamo outlet[/url], president and co founder of Beach Environmental Awareness Campaign Hawaii, argues that a plastic bag ban would reduce the stream of waste and protect marine animals,[url=]lulu[/url], especially sea turtles, which can mistake plastic for jellyfish.
She said she has seen plastic bags flying out of garbage containers and city refuse trucks on rubbish collection day,[url=]abercrombie and fitch[/url].
Frazer said she sees a ban on plastic bags as the first step in moving people toward reusable products and becoming caretakers of their environment,[url=]timberland femme[/url].
"It starts people on the road to environmental responsibility,[url=$%&/]red bottoms shoes[/url]," she said.
On Kauai and Maui, meanwhile,[url=$%&/]jersey soccer[/url], Council members say they are still assessing the public reaction to the new ban.
Kauai Councilman Mel Rapozo said while opinions appear split on the new law, food service establishments are complaining that other alternatives such as paper and cloth bags do not work as well, especially when food spills from containers.
Rapozo said he is planning to introduce an amendment that would exempt food service establishments from the plastic bag ban.
On Maui, most of the merchants are providing paper or reusable bags, and people are adjusting to the change, said Councilman Michael Victorino.
He said he will probably know in six months about the impact of the new law.
"From my perspective it's going OK, and I think it's a step in the right direction,[url=http://www.insanityworkouts-calendar@#$%&/]insanity calendar[/url]," he said.
Victorino said the county needs to reduce its stream of waste. "We're running out of room," he said.
The Big Island County Council is considering a plastic bag ban that would give businesses a one year grace period.
