Let’s expand that plastic bag ban
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.
