Vail Daily letter: Ban plastic bags
I was proud of our Town Council when it passed the new recycling ordinance. It was a step in the right direction for a town that prides itself on its connection to the environment. Now is the time to take the next logical step — to begin the process of banning the use of plastic bags in town.
I urge the Town Council to keep us in the forefront of enlightened communities throughout the U.S., and especially those neighboring mountain communities that have already moved to ban plastic bags. Our visitors will expect us to do this, and we should not disappoint them. I plan to be at the Town Council meeting next Tuesday when this subject will be discussed, and I urge those of you who support a plastic bag ban to attend as well.
