The list of cities and countries that have outlawed plastic grocery bags continues to grow. From Kenya, to China, the US, Canada and more. Check out the full list here.
I have no problem with phasing out plastic grocery bags. Save the environment. Save the whales. Free Wynona.Whatever.

I’ll climb down from my soap box now to share today’s commercials, promoting Hefty Waste Bags. These spots were created by Jared Hess, director of Napoleon Dynamite in conjunction with Euro RSCG, Chicago. Hess’s style definitely shows through in these three commercials. They’re somewhat understated and awkwardly funny.
