The plastic controversy moves to Howard County
On a recent visit to the Florida Keys, I noticed that all the straws were the old fashion paper straws instead of the plastic ones we now have. Plastic may have been the wave of the future at one time but it is now seen as an environmental hazard. Australia cut its plastic waste by 80% in just 3 months. Many recycling centers are now losing money because China has stopped buying our plastics. Locally a bill has been passed in the Maryland General Assembly to give permission for the Howard County Council to impose a fee on the use of plastic bags. Now it is the time to let your Council member know you support this fee being imposed.
