They are spreading like plastic bags.

The City of Stamford joined Greenwich in weighing a ban against the use of plastic shopping bags.

The idea of a bag ban has been taken up City of Stamford Board of Representatives’ Legislative & Rules Committee.

Members who met last week agreed they want to restrict use of plastic bags. They just aren't certain how.

One proposal would ban them altogether another would charge a tax or fee.

Here is Daily Voice coverage of a ban passed in Greenwich.
