"Plastic bags are useful and help save trees..."

Plastic bags are useful and help save trees

Now the Kauai contrarians and so-called environmentalists are pushing for a plastic bag ban on our island.

Plastic bags can be used time and time again. I re-use supermarket plastic bags for garbage bags, storing leftovers, harvesting fruits and vegetables and carrying things on my bicycle, since the bags have handles.

The need is not in banning plastic bags, but educating the public on the many uses for them.

Another irony is a few health food stores have stopped using plastic bags but will bag your groceries with paper bags; remember, you need to cut down trees to make paper bags.

Banning plastic bags will be costly and a headache we cannot afford.

I have so many canvas reusable bags, but almost ALWAYS forget to take them to the store with me. :(
