We saw this sign at our local Whole Foods yesterday, a nice reminder that the stores will stop using plastic bags on Earth Day, April 22nd. There will still be recycled paper bags at checkout, but the better option, of course, is to bring your own... Compared to Europe (and even San Francisco), our country is still way behind the times in curbing our use of plastic bags, but hooray for Whole Foods for at least taking one step forward.
In the market for a good reusable tote? Later today, we'll show you a few of our favorites, including one we bought at the Brooklyn Flea last weekend.
