Imagine American Beauty With A Canvas Bag

It all started in San Francisco.

No more bags in trees. Yep, you heard it here first.

I'm not kidding. That's the argument used to justify a proposed $0.17 per grocery bag tax.

Try to imagine those two sentences next to each other.
"No bags in trees." "A $0.17 grocery bag tax."

Go ahead, read them again. Now certainly, discarded plastic bags blow around the City. And San Francisco has a lot of trees. Makes perfect sense to me.

Next thing you know, we've got plastic bags in trees. What happened to paper bags? To be fair, SF has also proposed to subject paper bags to the tax.

What next? Think canvas.
