Living Green: Readers weigh in on plastic bags

Published Thursday June 30

By Kathryn McKenzie, Living Green

In last week’s column, I asked for your opinions about local bans of single-use plastic bags, and you didn’t disappoint me. Here are some thoughts on the matter, edited for space and clarity.

• “Over the last ten years, I have picked up about 25,000 gallons of litter in a four-block area of Monterey. My schedule is once a week. Prior to the plastic bag ban I would find 6 to 8 plastic bags every collection. Now I find about one bag every 3 collections. For those saying plastic bags are not a litter problem, may I suggest traveling down one of the interstates, particularly in the desert, pulling off onto a side road and walking through the brush.
