I enjoyed Michelle Millet’s column on Sunday, April 20, titled “Striving for Zero Waste: Beyond the bring-your-own-bag habit.” I support bring-your-own bag, coffee mug, water and utensils. I bring my own as often as I can or ask for a for-here cup, as Millet suggests. I agree with and support the message in her commentary.
What I don’t want is the city raising our taxes and fees to pay for bag bans and everything else the City Council wants to ban. Allow people the opportunity to do the right thing on their own. Let’s all respect personal freedom and encourage personal responsibility.
