​The sale of plastic bottles is banned in San Fransisco!! Hurrah

In the UK you have to pay 5p (10 cents) for a bag in the grocery store. There has been a huge impact on the number of plastic bags sold. Why doesn't the United States do the same, reduce the carbon footprint...bring your own bags!!!! 

The weather outside is getting chilly!! 
Hardly anything to do in your garden this month so you can enjoy your holidays!
