Letter Plastics should be properly disposed of

Editor,

My response to State Law SB 5323: I for one, and I’m sure there are others, who line our waste baskets with these plastic bags and when we dispose of them, they are incinerated?

So now we have to buy a bag. I don’t see how that will help the environment, just someone’s pocket just because these bags are scattered about instead of being disposed of properly. We pay the price for slobs. Some of us were taught at home to pick up and dispose properly.

Guess it’s something the schools are going to have to teach because parents are not and they should be setting the example. It angers me that we make laws where common sense should prevail.

I agree with Christina Bromme’s Jan. 7 letter to the editor of the South Whidbey Record. We need more people like her and her husband trying to clean up, but it shouldn’t be necessary if everyone disposed properly, and there is no excuse not to.
