san francisco does it again!
san fran! my love! you have done it again!
first, about two and a half years ago, s.f. banned the use of petroleum-based plastic bags in supermarkets and the like, promoting recyclable paper, reusable canvas or plastic, or compostable cornstarch bags instead -- as a means of reducing unnecessary waste.
now! s.f. is the first city in the nation to create a law that forbids residents to discard food waste into the normal rubbish! they will now have to discard it into another bin, which the city will then remove, turn to compost, and sell to farms and whatnot. HOW GREAT IS THAT?? the whole store is at the link above.
