    Today I emailed Doug McMillon, the CEO of Walmart about banning plastic bags.  Just think how many Walmart plastic bags are floating around (literally).

    I have been a conservationist all my life and minimize plastic use, compost, etc. hence not many goals in FL. I returned to my Maryland home July 15 for the summer and was appalled with the waste and plastics used by my adult son and his family. Needless to say, it is a work in progress. Likely I have accumulated mucho points for the team!

    Todays letter about banning plastic was sent to Kevin Murphy, president of Publix Supermarkets.  If Publix made this statement, I'm sure others would follow.
