DC Residents Fight Back Against Bag Monster Attack on the Anacostia River Watershed!

On January 1,st 2010, Washtington DC was the first city in the United States to implement a fee on single-use disposable bags.  “We realize we were a bit too successful in our ongoing quest to cover the world in single-use plastic”, lamented, a local group of D.C. Bag Monsters.  A recent study by the Anacostia Watershed Society found that plastic bags were “the single largest component of trash” in the eight-mile river and its tributaries.  The Bag Monster population is seeing a 80% reduction in growth, now that a 5 cent fee is charged for single-use paper and plastic bags withing the district.  Some Bag Monsters remained optimistic stating that their existing population of millions will continue to roam the earth for 500 to 1,000 years. 

If you are near DC, please come out and meet the Bag Monster and his pile of 45,000 single-use plastic bags.  Bring the whole family and try on a Bag Monster costume.
