Re "Plastic bag ban is not a simple issue" (Editorials, Feb. 19): Plastic bags are littering our precious environment and suffocating our wildlife. It's imperative that we stop the use of plastic bags as soon as possible. There are alternatives to plastic bags.
Many grocery stores sell reusable shopping bags for less than a dollar. We can afford to be green. These bags are more durable than plastic bags and are as convenient to use. Paper shopping bags, while a better alternative to plastic bags, are still wasteful.
