While grocery stores often encourage you to bring your own reusable bags, many people are still using plastic.

Two high school students in Clearwater, B.C., want plastic bags to become a thing of the past.

Katie Bieber and Reid Rebinsky are asking people in their town to take a pass on plastic bags,
