Letter: Better solution needed to reduce plastic bags

Better solution needed to reduce plastic bags

I wish the March 28 letter writer (“The time is right to ban single-use plastic bags”) had a better solution to the plastic bags problem. I throw about 10 store bags per week into our apartment dumpster. The rest go to store recycling. I borrowed a Glad bag that could hold double the store bag’s contents, but it weighed about 4 times as much as the store bag. I am over 80 but take all papers, catalogs, etc., to a recycle bin.

I guess my future is doubling or tripling my plastic pollution and paying Glad for the privilege. Old story: Do the right thing and you’re left holding the bag.
