BYOB to Shop

Did you know that “San Francisco was the first (and still the only) major US city to implement an across-the-board ban on plastic bags?… Los Angeles is banning plastic bags starting July 2010 until California manages to implement a statewide plan to charge a fee to those who request plastic bags.”

Every time I go to the grocery store now, I either carry out the few groceries I purchase or am sure to bring my reusable shopping bags. The detrimental effects run through my mind now that I have been informed. Plastic bags are not biodegradable, and are harmful to the environment since they’re petroleum-based.

Please help participate in cutting down the use of plastic and paper bags and bring your own!!
