Should Cities Be Able To Ban Plastics?
This seems like a controversial subject. My state's GOP-led legislature has superseded municipalities that wish to reduce plastic pollution by banning plastic bags and takeout containers. There are other places around the country which have already done so, but a number of states have made it impossible for local gov'ts to enact their own bans. The plastic bags manufacturers, et al. have lobbied against these bans successfully, and will continue to do so.
I live in a state surrounded by water and filled with many inland waterways as well. Plastic pollution is a big problem here There is no place untouched by it, it seems. Every place you go, you're pretty sure to find plastic waste littering the landscape.
