No more plastic bags in San Francisco grovery stores

Starting Tuesday, plastic bags illegal at big S.F. grocery stores: "Attention San Francisco shoppers: Plastic grocery store bags are going, going, gone. Starting Tuesday, large grocery stores in the city can no longer use the traditional plastic bags that are a staple of the supermarket checkout line, as a city ordinance passed earlier this year to ban the bags takes effect."

This is a pretty good idea. Other cities are following and hopefully more American cities will follow.

Oakland passed a similar ban that goes into effect early next year and London and Paris both have followed San Francisco's lead
