Unfortunately - yes. I can totally believe that. Grrrrr. At the very least, all the Wal-Mart stores I have seen have a place to recycle the plastic bags. It would suck for me to have that ban because I only get enough plastic bags to use in my bathrooms, and then I use my cloth bags the other 90% of the time. However, I would totally support a ban - that would be awesome. I would just suck it up and buy a box of bags for my bathroom every so often.
We are also going to get our veggies/fruit/eggs from a local CSA this year. How cool is this - they have a drop off that is only about 2 miles from my house. Score! I'm excited about it. We didn't do it last year because I erroneously believe that we would get to move out of this crappy city at some point. *sigh* Oh well - have to make due with what you got, right?
Since I have accepted the fact that we're stuck here, I am determined to learn how to garden in this awful climate we have, so I've been picking my friend's (the plant goddess) brain lately!
This is a great thread. I finally got through reading the whole thing! I'll come back and contribute more, but my two year old has lost patience and is demanding some book time now!
