Our New Look!

As you may have noticed, our website was undergone a major redesign. With the amazing talents at Electric Pixel (www.electricpixel.ca), they have captured all of the important factors we want to relay to our clients. The design refresh includes a photoshoot taken by Agency Charlie in San Francisco (www.agencycharlie.com) showcasing our stock and custom reusable bags. The photoshoot took place in beautiful Presidio Park and was a perfect backdrop for our products and models. Thank you to everyone involved in our revamped site, we are so excited it is up!

Broader Ban Proposed on Plastic Bags in SF Stores

A city supervisor is proposing broadening the city-wide ban on single-use plastic bags already in place at large supermarkets and chain pharmacies.  Right now, this law requires such stores to provide only three types of bags to customers: compostable plastic bags, recyclable paper bags, or reusable bags.  The expanded ban would include nearly all retailers in the city, such as smaller markets, restaurants, convenience stores, clothing stores, and others.  The exceptions to the rule would include plastic bags for produce, newspapers, and dry cleaning.  The expanded law would also add a $0.05 charge per bag for paper bags at checkout. Here’s a link to an article that discusses the development: http://sfappeal.com/news/2010/08/plastic-bans.php
