The Plastic Age Has Passed. . . in San Francisco

If you don't live here (or if you do and haven't been to the grocery store this week), you may have missed the fact that plastic bags are now banned, outlawed, verboten at the larger grocery stores in San Francisco. I, of course, have used my hand-woven, hand-dyed, organic, fair trade, shade grown, pesticide-free, vintage shopping bag for years now. I won it in a game of hacky sack in college. Me vs. the hippies. I still thank them (and Mother Earth) when I go to Whole Foods.

I guess it's a good thing. Less plastic, less trash, fewer of these. I am, though, a little bummed that I bought a Simple Human trash can that was specifically designed to re-use those pesky plastic bags. Now what will I use? I guess I'll have to horde Walgreen's bags until another solution presents itself.

Farewell, American Beauty! We'll miss your translucent smothering love.
