Re "An easy call on a statewide ban on plastic bags: Yes" (Editorial, Aug. 14): I wrote in the last couple of days to both Raleys and Safeway asking them that if SB 270 by Senator Alex Padilla passes, that the stores give the 10 cents per bag for paper bags that they will collect from us their customers to either a worthy cause or give it back to us via amazing sales.

This law will also give enterprising people reasons to start new businesses for the carrying of groceries, etc. I am sorry for those whose jobs will be affected, and I hope their employers give aid to them for new employment.

I do agree that the carelessness of us users of the plastic bags with handles has brought this about. Let us all work to keep our environment clean, neat and tidy.
