Letter: Argument against plastic is paper-thin
Re: ‘Cities, towns move forward with bans on plastic bags’ (Metro, Feb. 19)
Plastic bags shouldn’t be banned. You will have the same problem with paper bags, too, and they break easily and fall apart in the snow and rain. I’ve seen several paper bags lying around the city of Cambridge, so it’s not just plastic, it’s paper bags as well.
Paper bags are bigger and tear quicker than plastic, not to mention cost more for retailers. And you think plastic is bad — just you wait. Ha.
