Fracking? It’s in the (Plastic) Bag!

Our Coop (PSFC) opposes hydraulic fracturing— fracking—in New York State, and for good reasons.

Fracking threatens NYC drinking water and upstate farmers’ ability to grow the healthy, affordable foods PSFC mem- bers have long relied on.

What does this have to do with plastic bags?

Many plastic bags are made from fracked gas! As fracking products, they contribute to the viability of fracking. Increased fracking will bring more frack-made bags. When we gobble up frack-produced consumer goods, we provide the excuse frackers need to expand their activities.
