Cloth or plastic?
So in a little while, Kauai will be banning plastic grocery bags because they are pointless litter and choke sea creatures and befoul our lovely island, littering highways and beaches and clogging our already maxed-out dump and reveal our moral decrepitude and innate slovenliness. Every store offers righteous little reusable cloth ones to replace the plastic ones. The cloth grocery bags offer a new vision of the future-- where we'll all recycle, shop at farmer's markets, apply sunscreen, and pay our bills on time.
The other day I was driving down the main highway and I saw something tangled in the guard on the right. It was a cloth grocery bag.
Old chucking-bags-out-of-vehicles habits must be hard to break.
