    Oh, it does, and more!

    I googled it and here's a picture of the bag. Hideous, who would be disappointed about this. You could make one on cafepress that said the same thing. I dunno, I wouldn't wrap myself around a block waiting in line for a dumb grocery bag!

    it is sad that being enviornmentally aware has to become trendy before people take action. don't get me wrong, i am glad to see a line around the block for a bag, but quite frankly, whole foods sells them for a dollar.

    great shots by the way, i especially love #7

    Yeah, I forgot to add in there that they came out really nice. I think its an interesting subject you covered.

    I really like the one where the lady is camera shy. ;-p

    Haha, here in Taiwan things got even more out of hand. It was an honest-to-goodness melee. People were hospitalized. Brand slaves. sad.
