Letter: Banning plastic bags will help environment

Banning plastic bags will help environment

I applaud County Executive Mark Poloncarz for proposing the ban on plastic bags. I am shocked that all the legislators did not come out in strong support. Instead of a study, Google “plastic in the oceans” and I think that you will agree that there is no need for a study.

Aldi and BJ’s do not use bags and their businesses are thriving. Use reusable bags for shopping and paper, which will break down, for your garbage. For the future of the planet and future generations, we better all wake up and realize that plastic bags are devastating to the environment.
