Plastic bags litter the ocean and our shores and pollute our water and our food supply. Learn more at www.anacortesbags.org.
Anacortes City Council
Please adopt a city ordinance--modeled on those implemented successfully in Bellingham, Seattle, and other coastal cities--to prohibit plastic grocery bags, and impose a 5-cent fee on each paper bag to encourage shoppers to bring their own reusable bags. Produce, meat, and bulk food plastic bags would still be available.
