Ban Plastic Bags in Denton, TX

Plastic bags are basically non-recyclable and cause so many problems for our environment. The Denton landfill is FULL of plastic bags. As a city, we should take the initiative to try to be even more green than we already are. Making the great Citizens use re-usable bags will reduce our use of plastic bags greatly. Please do the right thing for our environment and for the future generations. We don't want them to have to deal with the mounds of plastic bags we have left behind for them to clear up.

      It is killing too much life we should use biodegradable plant fibres instead.

      It is destroying our environment. Austin banned it, now it's our turn.

      I am a resident of Denton county, a graduate of UNT, and a frequent shopper in the city of Denton. I would be SO proud to see Denton (named one of the best small towns in the USA) ban single use plastic bags, setting an example for the rest of the country, and making a monumental impact on the environment!
