Re: “Seattle outlaws plastic bags” (TNT, 12-20).

I just heard about the plastic bag being banned in Seattle. That’s so awesome; I just hope that it gets banned in Tacoma, too.

I know I always want to stop using plastic bags, but I forget and go to the store, and then all of a sudden – more plastic bags. I would remember to bring my reusable bags if I had to, and so would other people.

The best way to change something is just to change it and make it work. Seattle has set a wonderful example for the rest of Washington to follow. Let’s ban the bag!
