Forget Convenience of Today and Think of Legacy of Tomorrow

BRAD Capes’ letter in last week’s edition headlined “Plastic menace” is a warning for the world.

I have written in this paper about humans’ negligent attitudes.

I have no children, but all of us must think of the future generations and of present animal and bird life.

We must stop thinking of our convenience today but think of the legacy of tomorrow.

Plastic bags and paper bags too must be avoided.

I am known in certain stores to not take bags or unnecessary wrapping such as two huge sheets of paper to envelope four slices of cold meat already in a plastic bag.

I say stick a label on plastic bag and they do.

Besides debris in earth and seas, it is costly to the company and ultimately passed to customers.
