Tip for the day: The dreaded plastic bags. (this one is for me- why can't i just remember to bring the damn canvas bags into the store?) I recycle mine but wouldn't it be more efficient to not even have them? Do you think they will be phased out? Do you ever think how wild it is that we can send people safely to another planet but can't seem to develop the infrastructure here on ours to adequately care for where we live? At Pike Place a guy walks around covered in plastic bags- you can't even see his face or any of his body. At first when i saw him I felt myself actually step back, away from him. Pretty effective.
