Re: Beefs and Bouquets, PNR March 11, on the high cost of food.
A few grapes is laughable compared to the use of reusable grocery bags to reduce the use of plastic bags. However, there is still a lot of plastic in the packaging of food and beverages.
Unfortunately, reusable grocery bags have been the answer to a shoplifter’s dream come true. This has forced the stores to increase security, which is far more costly and minimally efficient.
I don’t have a solution, except more paper, which is also a common complaint.
