Tom Bolton: Useful plastic bags

July 13, 2014 

You might have wanted to bag your July 7 editorial “ Time to bag the plastic.” Those plastic grocery bags get reused by dog owners all around Raleigh. There will be quite a different environmental nightmare if those plastic bags aren’t available to pick up after our dogs.

Also, your editorial staff really needs to talk more with your home subscribers and your delivery crew. Soggy papers delivered to our front yards on every rainy morning would lead to a lot fewer N&O subscribers.

I do hope that you plan to continue to use plastic bags for your paper delivery process.
