RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - If you thought supermarkets would be giving away schwag forever, you might be a little dazed and confused to find out that the city of São Paulo has implemented a new law that bans the free-giveaway of the traditional petroleum-based, plastic bags in its commercial establishments.
The new law, like a run away white trash plastic bag that once wanted to get to the other side of the city but winded up in the bottom of the local river, could soon be implemented across other major cities like Rio . . .
