I applaud California Gov. Jerry Brown for signing SB 270, the ban on single use plastic bags. Brown promises that even though California is “the first [state] to ban these bags … we won’t be the last.”
Considering Florida beaches and their importance to the state’s economy, it is appalling that our governor has expressed a lack of concern for environmental issues.
Nevertheless, Gov. Rick Scott should follow California’s lead.
A ban on single use bags spreads the responsibility of protecting our environment to everyone.
