Letter: Bag the blight
Re: ‘Cities, towns move forward with bans on plastic bags’ (Metro, Feb. 19)
What I hate about retail plastic bags is that, when the trees have no leaves, once the bags are free to roam, they fly up in the air and get caught in tree branches, where they can stay for years. Whenever I see one floating around at ground level, I try my best to catch it to stop additional blight.
For this alone I am for a statewide ban. San Francisco banned them, and people now own a few reusable nylon or cloth bags that don’t rip, saving a lot of resources.
