Plymouth: League of Women Voters in support of expanded bottle bill

That the League of Women Voters is in favor of an expanded bottle bill cannot be doubted.  The group manned a booth at the Plymouth Farmers Market in the rain Thursday to enlist support.

The League’s Linda Benezra delivers a convincing message:

“The big litter problem today is the water bottles, the juice bottles, a whole product line that didn’t exist when the bottle bill was passed thirty years ago.  So, we’re asking you to sign this pledge that you will vote yes on Question 2 on Nov. 4th  and we’ll send you a reminder.”

“I’m glad to do that because I’m sick and tired of seeing gazillions of plastic bottles all over the place.”

But, not everyone is sold on the idea: 

“I don’t think the bottle bill is needed.  I haven’t decided.  I want to look at both sides and then make a decision.”

And, there are those for whom it’s simply a matter of what’s right: 

“Well, I’m in support of the bottle bill because it just seems like the right thing to do.”
