Plastic Bag Ban Finally in Effect

I'm so proud of my city! Santa Monica FINALLY banned plastic bags at all grocery and retail stores this week. It was a long time coming - for a city that claims to be a green leader. If I forget my stash of  reuseable bags at home it is going to cost me 10 cents per paper bag. This is definitely an incentive to keep those reusable bags stocked and clean. My personal favorite are cloth and nylon, like the Flip & Temble sold at I'm not a fan of the cheap plastic and vinyl reusable bags many chain stores give away. They don't wash or wear well - so what's the point?
