I was reading this article in the Washington Post about how plastic bags are out of vogue now… Here’s a fun quote:
“I remember life before plastic bags. There was no “paper or plastic” at the Giant in the 1970s. Just paper, which kids dutifully recycled into book covers for elementary school texts.”
I loved this line, simply cause I remember learning how to do this and how Dad would write neatly and deliberately the book’s title on the cover in black marker.
