Picture America – Recycling

I keep my reusable grocery bags in the trunk of my car. I like to use them instead of the plastic bags that are suffocating planet earth. Lucky’s Market, a new grocery shop that opened recently in my neighborhood, gives customers 10 cents for each reusable bag used. Customers can choose to deduct the 10 cents per bag from their receipt or receive a token worth 10 cents, to be denoted to one of the three charities shown in the picture below.

Picture America: Smoke free property

It is been years since I saw anyone smoking indoors. Luckily, recently a more strict ban on smoking has been initiated by some institutes; that is, smoke-free property. My university is going to be a smoke-free campus by January 2014. Currently, smoking is allowed only on few designated open areas on campus. I wonder what would be next to limit more smoking in the USA? Would the USA be one day a smoke-free zone?

Here is some pictures of our city’s public library and its smoke-free property sign.
