Update: The wind is blowing, and it seems to be clearing out the single-use plastic bags here in western Washington. We’re a long way from being done with these particular items, but the journey is well on its way. In the past month, Tumwater and Thurston County have voted to eliminate the use of the filmy bags at grocery stores, and Olympia is considering similar legislation this coming week. There’s a rising movement in the city of Tacoma as well and with the recent rulings, along with bans in Seattle, Mukilteo, Bellingham, Edmonds, Issaquah… (the list goes on), it is just a matter of time.
Will you really miss them when they’re gone? Because they are going to be gone soon.
