Environmental drama

Tara Zrinski, Northampton County Councilwoman, is a ball o’ fire.

Her resolution to ban single-use plastic bags and straws will be discussed at the county Open Space committee meeting Thursday, 1/24/19, at 4 pm. at the Northampton County Courthouse-Council meeting room.

And then voted on at the regular Northampton County Council business meeting that evening at 6:30 pm.

Gadfly has been attending our Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) meetings — meets first Thursday of the month, 7PM, Illick’s Mill — for about a year now, and we have a plastic bag proposal coming down the pipeline.

So followers of environmental issues are urged to attend one or both of the Zrinski meetings.

Gadfly cannot attend, so reports from attendees – as comments to this post or longer separate comments – are most welcome. Pictures too.

Zrinski is colorful, and fellow blogger Bernie O’Hare (see the link to his blog on our sidebar) has been having fun with her.

One thought on “Environmental drama

  1. I’m very happy to see potential initiatives to address this issue. I use my canvas shopping bags for grocery and other shopping trips. Seeing plastic bags blowing across a shopping center parking lot, blocking storm sewer gratings, hanging in trees or caught along stream banks has been a pet peeve of mine for years. I hope the legislative bodies at both the county and city levels will feel the same way.
