White trash bags

Idea#130

Stage: Active

Campaign: Taking Action on Climate Change

Right now - most trashcan sized liners and leaf bags are black. They should be white so they reflect the sun's heat back off the planet. I'm thinking of hundreds of thousands of these bags at the dumpsites - all black and all absorbing heat into the earth because black absorbs more heat. If they were all white, they would contribute a little to the reduction of global warming.
