The city of Seattle is another step closer to adopting a ban on plastic bags.

Katrina Rosen of Environmental Washington said, “I’m hopeful and excited to see Seattle be number four,” referring to the fact that Seattle would be the fourth city in Washington to ban plastic bags.

“Though we only use them for a few minutes … (they) can spend hundreds of years in Puget Sound, impacting marine wildlife,” she said.
