Guest Posting re: Bags on PennFuture Session Daze!

plastic bag on the beachYou probably know our love of hating single use bags.

PennFuture was nice enough to let me guest post about why they’re bad for Philly and what we can do.

After all,

“Since 2009, many U.S. cities – including L.A., San Francisco, Seattle, Washington D.C., Austin, Portland, Aspen AND the Hawaiian islands have all either passed plastic bag fees or bans. Entire countries including South Africa, Ireland, Oman, Ethiopia, China and France have either implemented fees or bans. So what’s the holdup for Philly – and the U.S.?”

Read the article on our friend PennFuture’s blog in its entirety:

Yo Philly, Time to Bag the Plastic Bags.
