Letter: Prohibiting plastic bags will benefit environment

Prohibiting plastic bags will benefit environment

Kudos to Mark Poloncarz for stepping up with a proposed end to the use of plastic bags by retailers. There is no good reason to keep them around, polluting the environment. My wife and I shop at a discount store that does not offer bags at all and we do not find it to be any inconvenience.

As for funding a study to research the impact such a measure would have on the environment, it doesn’t take a genius to realize the positive impact and benefit it would make. Let’s not waste the taxpayers’ money and time on researching the impact of getting this done. Just do it.
