From inhabitat.com, a story about San Francisco banning plastic bags.
Strangely enough, I found this site through a search for tetris (I’ve been playing a lot of it lately.) Banning plastic shopping bags is interesting though and a good idea. People will either have to bring their own totes or use paper.
I forgot to mention the three Rs in the things I love when I mentioned art, design and architecture… recycling/reducing/reusing! I find composting especially fun. It is such a sensible idea and fascinating to watch veggie waste and whatnot gradually turn back into dirt. That, or I am just weird.
