The 32nd Legislative District Democrats support Plastic Bag Ban in City of Shoreline

From the 32nd District Democrats

The Shoreline City Council will be considering a “ban” on “single-use” polyurethane plastic bags in 2012.  Protecting our environment is an extremely important value for Democrats and we are proud that two neighboring cities, Seattle and Edmonds have already passed bans on “single use” polyurethane plastic bags.
The 32nd District Democrats strongly support a “ban” on “single use” polyurethane plastic grocery bags and urge the Shoreline City Council to move forward and pass legislation to implement a ban. 
32nd Legislative District Democratic Organization Environmental Platform:

Like all parts of the web of life, we depend on clean air, clean water, and a healthy natural environment. The well-being of every nation requires intelligent management of population and growth, limiting of urban sprawl, and preservation of farmland, wildlife habitat, and natural resources. Accordingly, protective laws and regulations must be vigorously enforced, and strengthened where needed.

GREAT! Do the 32nd district Democrats also support the purchasing of plastic bags for dog and cat waste- wet towels and suits and other super obvious uses for the grocery store plastic bags?

Remember back in the 70's when all of the environmentalists told us to use plastic to "save the trees"...

I guess I'll be buying those little plastic bags at the grocery store. Gotta love that your "ban the bags" push is going to cost already hurting families money.
Good thing you can pat yourselves on the back some more and tout your love for the environment.

I think the canvas bags are unhygenic and washing them will use resources. I also like using the plastic bags for cat waste and other waste. I'm planning on shopping in Shoreline until they also ban the use of plastic bags.
