SO, recently California passed a law wherein we now have to use our own bags every time we go to the market or CVS or Rite-Aid, or wherever. If you don't take your own bags you have to purchase one for 10 cents. So if you buy a shitload of groceries, you're now going to have to pay an extra 40 or 50 or 60 cents on top of that .... to help the environment. HOWEVER, here's the really smart part. The bags they sell you are made of .... wait for it .... PLASTIC. you know ... to help the environment.
If you're smart like I am, you've already purchased plenty of bags with handles made out of something (not plastic) but sturdy and reusable. I have them in my car. And every time I go to the market or CVS or Rite-Aid I completely forget to take them into the store with me, ergo, I end up purchasing MORE PLASTIC BAGS. California. Why people want to come here I have no idea.
