What are we going to put our groceries in come July 1? Most stores won't let you bring your own bags into the store. Vermont won't let the stores give you a free plastic bag as of July 1. What are we going to put our groceries in? Gov. Scott knows this is a problem. The Legislature knows this is a problem. The stores know this is a problem. Do we have to create another coronavirus risk for store employees and customers? Delay the plastic bag ban. Tick, tick, tick.

umm, paper? or reuse all the boxes they receive shipments in, come on people you can think beyond plastic


Oh, you can still get plastic bags, but there will be a 10 cent fee for them. I'm sure that some of that fee will go to the State of Vermont. Back in the 60s, they went to plastic because paper required cutting too many trees, The most common bumpersticker on New Jersey cars in the Pico and Killington parking lots said "Don't Jersey Vermont". We have become full circle,wrightapprco. !
