A Program to share reusable bags
Well, if reading this is making you go red in the face because you've been a reusable bag stockpiler, I've got a solution for you -- if you live in or plan to visit Southern California soon. The City of Santa Monica's just launched a Share A Bag program . The gist: Those with too many reusable bags can drop off their extras at Share A Bag locations, while those without reusable bags can pick some up for free. It's like those leave a penny / take a penny dealios at cash registers -- except with bags instead of coins.
