Attention Tacoma shoppers: You might have to bag your groceries differently sometime next year.
City officials are considering becoming the 14th community in Washington to adopt shopping bag restrictions. They started taking the public’s temperature in an online survey last month. More than 1,300 people have responded so far.
“More people than not are saying the city should take some action,” said Kristin Lynett with Tacoma’s office of environmental policy and sustainability.
