'It Must Be Done'

New, 52 comments

The Park Slope Food Coop, which has already banned bottle water, has struck again, with members voting last night to ban plastic bags. "The well-being of the planet was cited as the motivation...and the notion of customer convenience was dismissed." Said one member: "It will be hard to give up plastic bags, but we can do it. We don’t need them! We can do it! It should be done. It must be done." There is no truth to rumors of members sewing their shirts into bags to carry groceries. [Brooklyn Paper]
