Plastics Problem

Thank you, Southampton Town Council, for the ban on lighter-than-air balloons [“Southampton Town Board Adopts Balloon Sales Ban,”, June 29]. This plastics ban could not have come soon enough. But this is only a drop in the bucket. A far bigger plastics crisis is happening to our planet: single-use plastic packaging.

I encourage everyone reading this to view “The Story of Plastic” video (DVD available at Rogers Memorial Library).

Whether you agree or disagree that we have a plastics crisis after seeing this film in its entirety, you can then make your own informed decision.
