Okay, make that two. Sharon and I both like to start our day with a hot cup of joe as we put out the morning newsletter, then rush off to our day jobs. We’re looking for 300 of our regular readers who can spare $5 a month to keep us in the black. Or perhaps you’d consider . . .
Dick Price: But what if all hundred people at my workplace followed suit? That’s 50,000 plastic bags per year that wouldn’t be fouling the environment. Or the 800 members of my church?
