I am a cat lover, having two precious kitties. When I first heard about the plastic-bag ordinance, I thought, “What will I do with the litter?” I use plastic bags to dispose of it.
After giving it serious thought, I decided I could buy bags from the market. This makes sense. I would spend about $26 a year, purchasing, on average, five bags a week. It seems a pittance when compared with the money I spend on litter, cat food and, especially, the veterinarian each year.
This is a small price to pay to be able to walk the Animas River Trail and not see plastic bags stuck on trees and bushes, or in street gutters in town.
