This has been an interesting week for the plastic shopping bag. As we reported the other day San Francisco has passed one hurdle in banning all petroleum based plastic shopping bags. Earlier this month IKEA started charging extra for plastic bags in all its US stores. On Tuesday I was reading a posting over on NYCO on the Wegmans supermarket chain making an effort to get consumers to buy their reusable bag for $.99.
