Another ASI Central poll, another surprise result … well, at least in my opinion.
On Feb. 15 — coinciding with the controversial news that the city of San Francisco expanded its plastic-bag ban to include hardware stores, gift shops and eventually restaurants — we launched a poll asking our users if they agreed with the banning of plastic bags. Given that a bag ban would bode well for our industry (re-usable promotional grocery bags could fill the void of plastic bags) but struggling with whether our users would agree with more government control, I eventually concluded that a majority of our users would vote “Nay” on this ban, thinking it would be something to the effect of 60/40.
Alas, not only was I wrong but the majority of our users voted in favor of the ban, to the tune of 52%.
Here’s the complete breakdown, including chart: (TOTAL VOTES: 227)
Do you agree with plastic bag bans?
Yes: (118 votes, 52%)
