I am happy the the issue of single use consumption is being addressed on this program, however this is not the manner in which I would have liked. Sen. Hass should not have even been on the show, he is busy and likely sleep deprived to say the least. I have seen him at DEQ meetings and talking with the Grocers, he is on the ground and studying the issues. Unfortunatly that may not have come across in the discussion today. There are groups in Portland that have worked hard on this issue, I would have liked to see them represented! I hope this is not the end of this issue at the state level.
Banning plastic bags or even taxing their use, is only the beginning. We as consumers need to stop single use consuming and act in ways that bennefit future generations not daily convience.
So OPB and Oregonians, I challenge you not get a plastic bag the next time you go to your favorite burrito cart or buy that six pack on Friday night.
P.S. newspaper is a great way to clean up dog poop!
