Let’s ex­pand that plas­tic bag ban

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

In re­sponse to “Har­ris Teeter par­ent com­pany to phase out plas­tic bags” (Aug. 24):

Ku­dos to Kroger/Har­ris Teeter for pledg­ing to stop us­ing plas­tic bags. Let’s hope Food Lion and others fol­low suit.

In­deed, city and county politi­cians should pass or­di­nances ban­ning plas­tic bags. It has been done along the coast and in other ma­jor cities. If in­cen­tives are needed, stores should charge for plas­tic or could have a short-term re­wards pro­gram for cus­tomers by pro­vid­ing a cloth bag if they buy, say, $25 worth of goods.
