I'm psychic

Since my "random pet peeves post," (just ten days ago) a DC law was created that charges shoppers 5 cents each time they want a plastic bag. Woo Hoo!!!

Some of my students have been complaining, I tell them to pipe down and love the Earth for a change.

I think this law should be in affect all across the US.

That is smart. People will complain, but they'll start bringing their own re-usable bags.

Did you know in WV they have a 1 cent pop tax on all pop and West Virginia University gets millions of dollars from it each year.

Okay, sis next time you come to visit I will hide all my plastic know the ones that line my garbage cans, the ones in my cupboard I re-cyle (but they eventually end up in the land fill), and the ones that come from Jubilee or Quality. Perhaps for Christmas next year you should buy mom and a dad a re-usable bag or two. I do walk to school,weather permitting, does that count for anything? I love ya to the moon and back!
With Love,
From your not so green mom (though I do love planet earth! and, I never litter!)

You should be so terribly proud of me. I went grocery shopping and I bought two bags! Guess what color they are????Green. So one baby step at a time I am going green.
Love ya to the moon and back. Mom

i agree! i love those reusable grocery bags and if i forget them i just buy another one instead of getting plastic! plastic just rips and you can't even fit very much into them!
