Letter: The elusive purple bags
Why is it getting so difficult to find purple bags? It appears that there are only a few places they can be obtained. When recycling was started in Concord, we were all for it. At home we re-use what we can to reduce our carbon footprint and try to be green any way we can.
The purple bags are becoming hard to obtain as some stores no longer want to deal with the storage and attention demanded. As one retailer told us, “every penny has to be accounted for,” which is nice to know, but is getting to be costly. If the city could make it easier for retailers and make them more easily handled, perhaps going green would be even more beneficial to us.
