Pictured: An anti-plastic bag activist makes a point in Austin, Texas. image from RetOdd, courtesy Flickr Researchers fear that such ubiquitous bags may never fully decompose; instead they gradually just turn into smaller and smaller pieces of plastic. The most common type of plastic shopping bag is made of polyethylene, a petroleum-derived polymer that microorganisms don't recognize as food and as such cannot technically "biodegrade." The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency defines biodegradation as "a process by which microbial organisms transform or alter (through metabolic or enzymatic action) the structure of chemicals introduced into the environment." In "respirometry" tests, whereby experimenters put solid waste in a container with microbe- rich compost and then add air to promote biodegradation, newspapers and banana peels decompose in days or weeks, while plastic shopping bags are not affected. Even though polyethylene California Contractor Lic. # 455969 SERVICE Complete Water Systems Sales & Repair Drilling "Your Complete Water Systems Company Since 1981" 765-1246 . 789-9976 P. O.

Ozone Water Treatment New I t#lettw ad (r6o) r6 -o or Air Conditioning and Heating can't biodegrade, it does break down when subject to ultraviolet radiation from the sun, a process known as photodegradation. When exposed to sunshine, polyethylene's polymer chains become brittle and crack, eventually turning what was a plastic bag into microscopic synthetic granules. Scientists aren't sure whether these granules ever decompose fully, and fear that their buildup in marine and terrestrial environments--and in the stomachs of wildlife--portend a bleak future compromised by plastic particles infiltrating every step in the food chain. A plastic bag might be gone in anywhere from 10 to 100 years (estimates vary) if exposed to the sun, but its environmental legacy may last forever. The best solution to plastic bag waste is to stop using disposable plastic "/:._ could invest a few bucks in reusable canvas totes--most supermarket chains now offer them--or bring your own reusable bags or backpacks with you to the store. If you have to choose between paper and plastic, opt for paper. Paper bags can biodegrade in a Service Borrego, Cuyamaca, Escondido, Julian, I matter of weeks, and can also go Ocotillo, Palomar Mountain, Ramona, I into compost or yard waste piles or the recycling bin.

According to the nonprofit Worldwatch Concrete- Foundations- Retaining Walls Institute, Americans only recycle INC. used to. BioBag is the leader in this field, but other companies are making inroads into this promising new green-friendly market. San Francisco's pioneering effort to get rid of polyethylene bags is a positive step, but environmentalists are pushing for such bans more widely. A California effort to ban plastic bags failed again recently, but will likely eventually succeed. Washington, Florida, New Jersey and North Carolina are watching closely and considering similar laws depending on what happens in the Golden State. Worldwatch reports that taxes on plastic bags in South Africa and Ireland have been effective at reducing their use by upwards of 90 percent; Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the Philippines, Taiwan and the FICTITIOUS BUSINESS NAME STATEMENT File No. 2010-022609 - Name of Business: BELLA HAIR SALON 1611 S.

For one thing is sure: lf thev don't make up their own minds, someone will do it for them. - Eleanor Roosevelt Our History Loop continued from page 9 of marriage, but wanted to make her own way. Along the way, she became ranchera of three ranchos - Secuan, Jamacha, and Los Coches, names which still are found on local maps. She even had the rare luxury of a carriage in a land of solid- wheeled ox carts. She could have lost it all in the murderous uprising of 1838, but she and her vaqueros stocked up on mission ammo and arrows. The rebels did not attack her ranchos - perhaps out of respect, or possibly fear. The spa at the hot springs is still there, much improved from the days of La Beats. There is also a very early chapel and a cemetery for you to visit. Much happened there in early" days, and much was tragic. But those are stories for later. When you go there and see it for yourself, take a moment to remember well a good indomitable woman who there brought comfort to others in need, and who lived to tell us in detail what life was like in her time. Also, it may help your house guests to understand why we love our back country so much and why we don't just sit on the couch all day like some people.
