View Ann Arbor's current environmental goals.


I reviewed the city of AA's environmental goals and did not see anything that mentioned cutting down or banning the use of plastic grocery bags. Is this being considered at all? We need to encourage people to bring their own reuseable bags to all types of, drugstore, mall stores. It's very easy to do and saves lots of energy, to say nothing of petroleum used to make plastic.
