With Italy recently putting into effect Europe’s first nationwide ban on plastic bags, it’s only fitting that a similar movement is underway here in the U.S.

It was produced by the environmental activist group Green Sangha — and already had close to 300,000 views on YouTube. Let’s hope the power of music helps convince a few more people (and cities/states/countries) that dropping plastic is the right thing to do in 2011.

Check it out after the jump below.
