Like many cities in the USA, Seattle has been trying to reduce refuse and waste of natural resources through its commercial and residential recycling programs. This summer's hot topics have been more proactive, such as avoiding bottled water in favor of using drinking fountains and bringing one's own cloth grocery bags for marketing. Proposed for next year is a small fee per bag charge for a store's paper or plastic. Tell me this: why do I keep forgetting my bags at home like this woman? ;^).
