The RALLY 4 REUSABLE BAGS @ CITY HALL seems like it made an impact. Based on some photos that I’ve seen, there appears to be support coming from our elected officials. During the City Council meeting, this fine gentlemen appeared with the following sign:
If that costume doesn’t make an impact, I don’t know what will. I’m personally tired of seeing plastic bags attached to trees all over Long Beach. I’m tired of seeing them in our waters, flying around our streets. Sorry, plastic bags, You are not as cute as that red ballon from that old French film.
Ok, I get how not everybody wants to walk around with a cloth bag. We should at least use alternatives; ones that are biodegradable or paper. Heck, even bags you can eat!
I do want to apologize to the organizers for not being able to go, but Tuesdays are always my worst nights to do anything. That being said, major kudos to all those who did go. I hope to hear some positive news from your cause soon!
