Subject: An open letter to those who seek to ban plastic bags
Date: 29 May 2015
Dear Plastic Bag banners,
While I support the cause that would remove plastic bag litter from clogging our waterways and potentially harming fowl and fish, I ask this question: Why don't we ban cigarettes whose "butts" litter our streets, parks, playgrounds, highways, etc and in doing so find their way to our streams and rivers where their cancer-cause chemicals leaking into our precious environment? I know what to do with my plastic bags when I am done using them--I put them in the trash or I recycle them. What are we supposed to put our pet poop in? Put them is special cloth bags?
