Before moving to Falmouth two years ago, I lived in a Maryland suburb of Washington, DC. Both DC and Montgomery County, Maryland, passed regulations restricting the use of disposable bags. In DC, there is a 5-cent tax on grocery bags, and in Montgomery County the tax applies to all retail establishments. These provisions have changed behaviors, and have become accepted practice.
I support the idea that Falmouth move forward in discussions—and eventual local regulations—regarding disposable bags.
This is a simple device that raises awareness and leads to a cleaner environment.
