paying more @ the grocery store
Yes people, a new bill has already been put into motion for every citizen to pay 25 cents at the grocery store for each plastic bag that you take home.
People i am serious. this is the most outrageous thing i have ever heard. first off the plastic bags are made out of recycled plastic and i (and a lot of people i know) recycle my plasticks like crazy. i use them for everything.
so in return our state, cali, would like us all to use the "hemp" bags. so everyone has to go buy tons of hemp bags to carry our groceries in. i personally dont watn all these bags istting in my car takeing up space junt in case i want to go to buy some food. i dont know about you all but i like to buy food twice a month. so when i go i buy a lot.
i talked to a guy that works for a major grocery store and he said that the plastic bags cost them under 2 cents. so the profit that they make from the bags have to be sent to the state under a certain tax. yes...just another tax...blah blah blah. i think it is all about control people.
what are your thoughts? i would really like to know other San Diegians opionions..............
