Flag doesn't belong on paper products

newsroom@islandpacket.comJune 1, 2014 

I am a proud American and, while shopping, I was appalled to see paper plates and napkins printed with the American flag. People will put all types of food on these plates, wipe their messy faces and hands with the napkins and then discard them. According to the code of etiquette for the American flag, it should not be printed on anything that will be discarded after temporary use. And when discarded, it should be done in a respectful manner. People should not buy products that desecrate Old Glory. And let the manufacturer know of your disapproval.
