This week, San Francisco passed a ban on plastic bags. If the new law gets approved by the mayor, as expected, then drug stores and supermarkets must replace their current bags with recyclable and/ or biodegradable bags immediately. Paper Magazine has a pretty thorough story about the new law, explaining how plastic bags pollute oceans and forests, and how they destroy the quality of life for millions of animals (and people) around the world. Meanwhile, we did a thorough scouring of the internet and found our favorite new reason to ban the plastic bag: J. Crew's new Amangasett tote for $49. Come on - wouldn't your groceries and shampoo look way cuter getting hauled home in this?
