It's one thing to read about stores going "green," its another thing to actually experience it. I recently stopped by the Student Center East to pick up some waste veggie oil for my biodiesel program, when I stopped by to buy some UIC apparel. While checking out, I was asked if I wanted a bag for my sweatshirts. The cashier told me that in efforts of a more source reducing outlook, the bookstore now charges about $1.50/bag to customers! This is a perfect yet easy way of becoming a more sustainable campus and I believe local stores should follow suit.
