SAN DIEGO (KNX1070) — SeaWorld San Diego plans to stop giving out plastic bags at the park’s gift stores beginning June 18.

Instead, customers will be offered paper or reusable sacks in order to eliminate more than one million bags from being distributed to consumers, SeaWorld San Diego Communications Director Dave Koontz said.

Sea World hopes the move “will have a nice impact on reducing pollution, not only in our landfills but also the potential of that type of pollution getting into our coastal ocean waters,” Koontz added.

The plastic bags can also be a problem for some sea turtles that mistake them for jellyfish and eat the plastic. Koonz told KNX 1070’s Tom Reopelle.

    The same morons against plastic bags once touted them over paper bags to save trees. The moronic greenies never see the implications of their stupid opinions.

    Nice to see that Sea World is joining in a growing crowd, I find it hard to believe that people are fighting the use of reusable bags. It’s not as if they’re taking the morons guns away.

    Its like you learn my mind! You seem to understand a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it or something. I feel that you could do with some p.c. to force the message house a little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.
