The North Carolina Legislature stopped counties from banning plastic bags, so I wrote a Democratic Legislator I know:
“I am particularly interested in supporting candidates who will publicly support letting localities ban or tax single use plastic bags. If you know some who will email me their support or otherwise go on the record, I will try to help them out a little. What do you think? Is that a helpful approach?”
He’s asking around. I have had one taker so far, and sent her $100. A token, but still. UPDATE 21 August: 2 takers, for $200 total.
