bag-monsterThere was a sighting of the internationally known “Bag Monster” early Wednesday morning at Paul Ecke Central School. The “Bag Monster” lamented over being kicked out of Ireland, South Africa, San Francisco, Malibu, Manhattan Beach and the Town of Fairfax (by overwhelming public vote in the recent election!) – expressing his desire to keep a “home” here in Encinitas. Rest assured that the mighty 4th graders turned the “Bag Monster” away with their Oath to remember that their “job” is to remind their family and friends to use reusable shopping bags over paper or plastic whenever they shop. Rejected yet again the “Bag Monster” blew across the room and out the door – threatening to send his “Sister Bag Monster” over to City Hall make a plea to the Mayor & City Councilmembers.

Don’t let the Bag Monster take over your city… use a reusable bag!
