Use earth friendly bags and not disposable plastic bags. July 12 Tacoma passed a law–no more flimsy plastic bags. (I’m a little late on this post, but we get there in the end!) They endanger marine wildlife and clutter the landscape. If you need a bag, you have to pay 5 cents for a recyclable paper bag or reusable bags will also be available for purchase. Grocery produce bags, dry cleaning bags, and newspaper bags are still allowed and free. Low income people receiving certain benefits get bags for free. That is good news for the cats as they like paper bags. I have quite a few reusable shopping bags of my own. Marigold is more of a “box cat” than a “bag cat” so she does not appear today. Let’s see the cats being earth-friendly.
