The commercial opens with an unsuspecting grocery shopper asking for a plastic shopping bag rather than paper.

The funny thing with the campaign against plastic bags the past few years is that I remember in the early 80's, there was a huge campaign to get us to use plastic instead of paper because we needed to save the trees.

And saving the trees gave us forest fires that burn for weeks, and forests that will never be forests again...
