Not really, although neighboring Hilton Head Island, South Carolina is going to outlaw plastic bags very soon. The fly in the poop, though is the plastic bags they have in handy reach all around for their dogs to place their poop into--they have smart dogs and phones so they don't know what to provide the dogs to place their poop into. What a conundrum for the poor beasts!
I could give up the other plastic, charge cards, but alas.
But shouldn't giving up something refer to food and drink as these have their basis in the Catholic Church's age old tradition of fasting as it is properly meant, not eating or drinking? There is symbolism in being hungry and thirsty as it relates to God and Jesus' fast of 40 days and 40 nights in the desert.
I have no problem with helping preserve our environment from trash and preventing plastic bags from going into the ocean and creating havoc for marine life, but do we have to make it a Lenten observance? NO! NO! NO! but that's just my humble opinion.
