No big surprise that there is now an eliminate the use of plastic bags committee in Melrose. Somehow, the committee couldn't get the 3 stores in Melrose who dispense plastic bags in large quantities to limit their usage, so now Melrose residents get to take care of the situation for them by being forced to use reusable bags. That is if this committee gets their way. What's next, no more use of dog poo bags and condoms in Melrose? This place has become totally ridiculous. I want the old Melrose back.
Out to lunch .Nothing knew.
End Plastic and I'll take my business elsewhere. I'll also stop picking up after my dogs.[Dog3][Dog2][Dog]
I'll vote for getting rid of plastic shopping bags when everyone votes against using plastic! Guess that won't happen!
No doubt the committee are mostly women with time on their hands. No guy would give a rats' a... over such a thing.
Some other women should start a "Save the Forest" committee promoting plastic bags.
The women fighting against plastic bags are the same women who used disposable diapers on their babies.

"Region Losing 65 Acres of Forests a Day, Report Says"
New England’s forests made a comeback over the past century, after colonial settlers cleared most of them for agriculture.
But now the region’s forests are again in retreat, as suburban sprawl and other development consumes about 65 acres a day of woodlands from Connecticut to Maine, a new report has found.
(Let's eliminate plastic bags and clear the forests again, you idiots !)
Plastic bags are way below the amount of trash produced in Melrose compared to the garbage produced by Melrose Messages. This site is like stuttering Bill the retard on ground hog day. MMMMellrrrose sssttinksss. DDDDolannn mmmmmust gggggooo. Vvvviiiolatitiion off oooooppenn mmmmmeeetttinng LLLaaaawsss. Go away please.
The sad thing is 99% is true.
It is not the stores that need to remedy the situation. If you are against plastic bags, then don't use them. That is all.
Preventing others from using them is more of the "know better" attitude that I see more of every year in Melrose.
If customers didn't want plastic bags then it wouldn't matter if stores offered them.
