City revives plastic bag ban discussion
Monday, February 25, 2019 by Tai Moses
Last summer, as you may recall, the Texas Supreme Court ruled that the city of Laredo’s plastic bag ban violated state law. Reading the writing on the bag, the city of Austin announced that it could no longer enforce its own single-use plastic bag ban. Now, Austin Resource Recovery has launched a survey to dig up the whole crinkly issue once again. What did you think of the court’s ruling? How do you feel about single-use plastic bags? Do you bring your own reusable bags when you shop? Do tell – take the survey right here, from now until March 8. Your answers will help shape ARR’s strategy to encourage retailers and residents to “honor the spirit of the ordinance with the voluntary use of reusable shopping bags,” as ARR eloquently puts it.
