It was almost three years ago that the city's Board of Supervisors considered a 17 cent tax on each petroleum-based plastic grocery bag to force supermarkets and drug stores to use alternative materials that would have less of an impact on the environment and landfills.
In a deal with the California Grocers Association, the Board of Supervisors agreed to not impose the tax if large supermarkets would reduce the amount of bags given to shoppers in 2006 by 10 million bags, just a little over 5 percent of the total.
Two years later the group said they had reduced the amount by 7.6 million, but fell short of giving the city the proof it had asked for.

 Emigre Books - Supermarket
Emigre's editor/designer Rudy VanderLans takes us to the heart of this spectacle, where suburban elements meet vacuous space, where dubious claims of commerce stand fragile against a harsh light, where contemporary dwellers impose incongruous notions of luxury on a magnificent wilderness landscape.

Supermarket takes us on a poetic journey through VanderLans's California, documenting our sometimes successful, sometimes futile attempt to transform an unfriendly environment into a bearable happy land.
