San Francisco Rules

It's the second day of October, and one new law took effect yesterday in San Francisco.  All the stores charge you 10 cents per merchandise bag. The idea is so obvious and simple.  To reduce waste and be nice to the environment. We've been conscious about it for years, but we still have to make it a law to push it further. So the new law should encourage more people to bring their own bags. Not just to grocery stores, but everywhere you go shopping.  10 cents is a minimum mandatory charge. That means some places might charge more with which I personally agree. A quarter will really make people take this issue seriously. So you have choices next time you shop at Peapod or anywhere else. Bring your own bag or say no bag. For those of you visiting from outside San Francisco, please do not complain. This law reflects us. This is just a part of the San Francisco culture. So I say...just enjoy it :-)
was it like 80 degrees yesterday?  loved it.  washed all of my grocery bags...
