I support the plastic bag ban ordinance in Napa (and similar ones in the works in other Napa Valley cities, including my own town of St. Helena). This ordinance may not be perfect, but it's a giant step in the right direction for our valley and our planet.
The city website calls out that 27 million bags each year in the city of Napa alone are discarded. It boggles the mind. There's great information and FAQs answered at CityOfNapa.org, as well as a list of public forum dates discussing the bag ban.
Join me in urging the Napa City Council to adopt this ordinance. Napa Valley's often been in the vanguard of sustainability solutions, and in this ordinance, the city of Napa can lead the way for the rest of our cities and towns. Let's choose to be part of the cumulative solution rather than apathetic or dismissive about what even our seemingly small contributions can accomplish.
