Thanks Pasadena for putting the last nail in the coffin of my locally owned business.

Pasadena recycles plastic bags so what’s the problem? Oh yeah, we have to look like we’re environmentally conscious, so we’ll put the little stores out of business. Enjoy shopping at Target where they can afford heavy plastic bags. I’m closing up after Jan. 1.

Thanks a lot,

Pasadena DOES NOT recycle plastic bags; they in fact are not accepted by the recycling company and clog the works. If your business will die because you can’t use plastic bags, you have a crummy business. And since you are closing Jan 1, but there isn’t even a proposed rule yet, just an inquirey about how the public feels about it, guess you already drove the business into the ground yourself.
