Whole Foods Gotta Brand New Bag...

and it isn't the usual "plastic" variety.....

Whole Foods is eliminating single-use plastic bags because they're petroleum-based and can take more than 1,000 years to break down in a landfill, said officials at the Austin, Texas-based company, which last year purchased Boulder's Wild Oats Markets.

Single-use plastic bags will be discontinued.

As part of the effort to cut back plastic use, Whole Foods has added a new 99-cent reusable plastic sack to the repertoire of canvas bags on sale in the store. Decorated with a green apple and a red handle, the bright bag reads "How Re-Freshing" near a pronouncement that it's made from 80-percent recycled plastic bottles. - The Daily Camera

So I take it you don't like single-use bags? What a bunch of Bag Monster Busters! There's a blog for people who want to be entertained and informed about the bag crisis: http://www.BagMonsterBusters.com

Nobody seems to want us around anymore... It's hard being a Bag Monster in the Age of Bag Bans! I can't even get a job because of convenient reusable ChicoBags.

For a good laugh (at my expense), and the latest info on Bag Bans with an entertaining twist, go to my blog: http://www.BagMonster.com

I know you sent me an email this week and I now can't find it anywhere at all! Ugh!
I don't have your adoptee's email address. I actually contacted her through her Flickr account and Flickr mail. Let me know if the two of you aren't able to hook up!

hope you are feeling better. Walking pnemonia...not fun!

Whole Foods still destroyed the Wild Oats nearest my house, and they charge $2.00 more a pound for ground bison than the "expensive" meat specialty store in the most expensive neighborhood in the city.

I have a good selection of totes, and plan not to enter Whole Foods again.
