Plastic bags are an unnecessary environmental hazard since many eco-friendly options exist like paper or canvas. We can break ourselves of the plastic bag habit. Some governments and retailers have begun to take steps to phase out plastic bags. San Francisco banned them six years ago, and many countries have either banned or taxed them.
I hope our city can be another shining example responsobility. I encourage you to take a stand and add Kings Beach to the growing list of cities and towns that are banning plastic bags.
