Letters | Better bags, not a ban
As a mother and pet owner who runs a home, I cannot really agree with a complete ban on plastic bags. I don’t think I really need to list the many uses we all come up with for re-using our plastic bags.
I will share that I have changed my shopping habits. I avoid shopping in Issaquah now. When I can, I shop in Redmond at the Target there and leave the store with many plastic bags for my garbage cans, etc.
I have heard through the grapevine that there are many Issaquah residents who have asked to revote on this issue, maybe because they failed to think through all of the ramifications of juggling all of their purchases out to their cars each time they shop.
I am not anti-environment, but simply busy, and trying to get through each day with as little fuss as possible. I would love for someone to come up with a better, biodegradable plastic bag. Maybe rather than a ban, that is where current efforts need to be focused.
