"We"?

Re: “Is Charleston next in line to take a stand on plastic bags?

We use our own bags so we don't have to use paper or fucking plastic.

Have that.

Re: “Is Charleston next in line to take a stand on plastic bags?

Ima,

I had a reply going to you, but it might make a better column than reply.

At the very least, can you provide some link to the historical context instead of just your recollection?

Re: “Is Charleston next in line to take a stand on plastic bags?

Yes there are more important issues, but it's also a good idea not to look over the seemingly small ones like this. Paper and plastic mills are a huge part of the issue that I'd like to hear more about, but this is just a brief article, not an essay.
Being able to recycle them from home like we do paper and plastic would encourage the consumer to be more thoughtful. Also, awareness of issues is the first step.

Re: “Is Charleston next in line to take a stand on plastic bags?

It's pretty easy to use my cotton net bags that I got on eBay pretty cheaply. Once I forced the habit (to stop forgetting them) it's no big deal. The cashiers don't love them, but I don't mind helping bag because I'm not lazy.

Re: “Is Charleston next in line to take a stand on plastic bags?

This is hard. I'm into recycling. I planted trees on my little property I have. I wish more people would do it. I recycle in my neighborhood. I try and use a bag when I shop. But I use the plastic bags for my dogs poop. Also for my small garbage bin in the bathroom. It would be great to make the plastic bags out of recycled material. They do make recycled poop bags. But they are expensive:(

Re: “Is Charleston next in line to take a stand on plastic bags?

No, that was the"save a tree" movement, probably a bit before your time Mat, one of the first environmental activist groups back in the 70s

"Who instituted the paper to plastic conversion in the first place?"

That'd be the plastic industry, not the environmentalist movement.

Re: “Meet Brother Speed, his one-of-a-kind bike, and the owners of the Holy City's raddest rides

Wish I could see you again Grandpa speed! I was with you the night Hurricane Hugo hit Charleston South Carolina some 27 years ago. I was only three years old but I remember you and I remember that night! It should be great to see you again!

Re: “Mother Emanuel: One Year Later

For a really good discussion about the meaning of last year's attacks, check out Yale historian David Blight's panel discussion from last September: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1JgFbRFoF…. The panel includes sometime Charlestonian Ed Ball. For a video of Pinckney delivering his homily at the April 19th event that Waters and Blight both refer to, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1JgFbRFoF…. Simon Lewis
