Now, I am finding out that I love SF for another reason...they are banning plastic bags from grocery stores. You can read all about it here, and here. There are approximately 180 million plastic bags distributed to San Francisco shoppers each year! These bags can be difficult to recycle and often wind up in the environment. I am encouraged to follow SF's ban and would love to see other communities do the same. In the mean time, here is a tutorial to make your own fabric bags using a plastic bag as a pattern...these are pretty simple and way cute.
Yes, I know I am turning more and more into a tree hugger...I love it.
