Cost of "Green" in Palo Alto
Original post made by Sally, College Terrace, on Dec 13, 2007
I asked my husband to walk down to the local copy shop to order an outdoor banner for my church. He was told that Palo Alto does not allow the sale of UV-protected banners. He walked home and drove to Mt. View, where the same chain store was happy to fill the order. He drove back. After the proof was ready, we both drove to Mt. View to review it. In two days, he will drive back to pick up the order.
We live three blocks from the local shop. Not only are we increasing the carbon footprint, but Palo Alto is also losing out on the sales tax (item cost $380).
Is there something wrong with this picture?
