Bag Ladies Lose Option in San Francisco


Yesterday, on a 10 to 1 vote, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors made their choice known in the ubiquitous paper versus plastic grocery bagging quandry. The vote bans non-biodegradable plastic bags in the city's large grocery stores and pharmacies. This ground-breaking new ordinance, probably the first of its kind in the US, will take effect in six months affecting drug and grocery stores with annual sales greater than $2million. Once the ordinance is in place, the bag choices will be paper or your pocket!

 … wonder if customers will still  be able to bring their own plastic bags …


When getting  bagged  what is your preference???
