Plastic Challenge: Cynthia p.w., Week 1
I’ve seen suggestions to use reusable bags at groceries and not to use plastic bags and/or paper bags. Yet, when I ask on a blog or on fb, what do people use for their garbage, there is usually not an answer or the answer is that they purchase plastic bags. I’ve used reusable bags in the 90s b/c I walked and biked to the grocery but even then I used the plastic bags for garbage. I don’t see paying for garbage bags when they are free.
So I continue to wonder what those cities that ban the use of plastic bags require for garbage disposal. And the answer needs to address not just those who live in homes where there is garbage pickup but what about for apartment dwellers?
