Plastic possibly harmful to human healthMore Info
To the editor:
Many scientific studies of plastic, in particular polyethylene terephthalate or PET, have pointed to possible deleterious effects on human health. It is for anyone to see that plastic is a huge source of pollution on the land and in the ocean. If Disneyland can ban plastic straws, surely we in Great Barrington can ban the sale of single-use plastic water bottles.
