LETTER: Businesses should follow Port Angeles’ lead

It has been so refreshing to see Port Angeles take a stand in reducing their plastic footprint by removing plastic bags from most city grocery stores.

However, those stores not in city limits still offer plastic bags like they literally grew on trees.

Many folks reject more governmental regulations.

Why wait for more laws to be passed?

Why don’t these stores, and the managers who run them, create a new policy that is more environmentally friendly simply because it is the right thing?

C’mon folks.

It’s a small step in the right direction.

Take the step now before being pushed to do so.

Melinda Gelder,

Port Angeles
