A request from Park City leaders: please choose reusable bags

Please choose a reusable bag when in Park City.

That is about as strong a statement as municipal leaders are willing to make, but it is one seen as being an important step nonetheless.

The Park City Council recently adopted a resolution encouraging people to select reusable bags when they are in the city rather than ones that are designed to be used only once. The elected officials did not take what would have been a much more dramatic action of instituting a ban on the bags meant for one use through the enactment of a law, something that was discussed recently but did not win the needed support.

Even though a law was not put on the books, the resolution is the most significant step taken by Park City leaders thus far as they consider the environmental impact of bags meant for one use, such as the plastic ones that many stores give customers when making purchases.
