Letter: Doing our part
I think we should ban plastic bags because of the effects on the environment.
Yes, many people will ask “What am I supposed to hold my food with?” There is an easy and greener solution: get reusable bags. They work better and last longer, they may cost you $1 more, but isn’t more for your money better? And if you pay $1 now it’s a step closer to having a natural looking Green River.
Time are tough in our economy, so obviously those who work to make the plastic bags will get laid off, and people along with the taxes, bills, mortgage/rent and food will also have to pay for bags.
In conclusion, our one small town isn’t going to protect the huge world of ours, but we can still do our part.
