Let's stop use of plastic bags

Newburyport Daily News

---- — To the editor:

I would like to add my voice to those calling for a cessation of plastic bag use by merchants in Newburyport. In addition to showing that we are doing our part in our corner of Spaceship Earth to care for the environment, it would be a daily reminder to all of us that we need to maintain a daily consciousness that what we do affects others, and that we need to factor these things in when measuring the true cost of things.
