Not one nickel more!

Since June, Toronto merchants have been legally required to charge customers five cents per plastic bag. The by-law is intended to cut down on waste and encourage shoppers to carry their own reusable bags with them.

Whether motivated by green thinking, thrift, or annoyance, “I don’t need a bag” has become a common phrase at the till.  And now you regularly see citizens walking around carrying random bits of grocery in their hands.
