City of Chicago Bag Tax begins February 1

January 31 marks the day that I must inventory all of our recycled paper shopping bags and report to The City how many we've got on our hands.

Gone are the days of free shopping bags...  You thought you had an endless supply of cat litter garbage bags?  No more!  Onto the future of maybe not using so many (renewable and non-renewable sourced) bags to carry items home with you.   

While we really admire---and would prefer!---to go bag-free like many small shops will be doing on February 1, you can continue to collect our coveted recycled paper bags.

....with a $0.07 tax.

Greenery isn't just the Pantone Color of the Year around Chicago.  Let's save the earth!
