Letter: Keep plastic bags, punish the litterbugs

Regarding Lynne Plambeck’s May 31 column, “SoCal sacks plastic. Where is our city?”

Instead of killing more businesses, why not push for more personal responsibility?

Who is responsible for plastic bag litter? (I’d guess a small minority.) Shouldn’t the rest of us react negatively to those who litter, e.g. say something like “What are you thinking? Pick that up!”

Plastic bags have several advantages. They are light, strong and can stretch.

We are asked to bring our own bags. Put several in your pockets. Can you do that with paper or cloth bags?

Instead of depriving the rest of us the convenience of plastic, let’s get tough with the litterbugs.
