Someone at church this morning made the comment during Joys and Concerns that California was banning the use of plastic bags at grocery stores, opting to use compostable bags made of starches. I was skeptical, since there are a lot of people in California with a Republican governor. It seemed too radical in a state where plastic is a term used in bags and surgery. It turns out the ban is in San Francisco, users of 181 million plastic bags a year. This same city plans on using dog waste to create energy. I like practical measures. I like the idea of leaving something behind besides energy issues and garbage.
