Hurray for Washington!
January 2nd, 2010 by steve

Well, at least something positive has happened in D.C. A new law went into effect yesterday requiring a 5 cent charge for shopping bags. This is a small but bold action that will force people to shift their thinking away from mindless consumption and disposal. They’ve also increased parking rates. Sadly the Washington Post emphasizes in their headline the negative impact this will have on consumers by “pinching” them. Why can’t the mainstream media change their tune and focus on the positive cultural change this could bring about?
