To go, please

So back in July, the city of Seattle imposed a 20-cent tax on paper and plastic shopping bags. Now, reports the Seattle Times, citizens are figuring out alternative ways to get their groceries, ranging from walking, biking, busing, and carpooling to purchasing gizmos that help haul the loot home. (Tip: If you use panniers on your bike, be sure they're slung correctly so your heels don't knock your eggs out onto the street.) Meanwhile, the Christian Science Monitor_ reports, the chemical industry is doing its darndest to get the Seattle tax repealed.
