McLeod: An ode to the plastic bag

By Jonathan McLeod, Ottawa Sun, April 9, 2018

I. Love. Plastic. Bags.

I know. That sounds kind of weird, right? Let me tell you a little story.

It was winter and I was in Grade 1 at Bel-Air Public School (RIP). I would, on occasion, ask my mom to give me a plastic bag to take to school in case there was a handout or newsletter to bring home. That’s right, kids, there was no email, no websites, no social media. We used printed … well, mimeographed sheets of paper to inform parents of things like tryouts for the school play (we did Winnie the Pooh; I was a skunk).
