Remember to BYOBag

Be sure to bring your own bags with you every time you shop — at the grocery store, pharmacy, and even the mall or hardware store. Each year the United States uses 10 billion paper grocery bags (that’s 14 million trees) and 100 billion plastic shopping bags (that’s 12 million barrels of oil). Bringing your own bag is a simple way to conserve natural resources and reduce pollution.

Community | 14 WELCOME TO INFO PALO ALTO Where can you take classes on organic gardening? How many ways are there to get to the airport? What volunteer opportunities are there in the community? Enter the world of Info Palo Alto 2012-13 and you’ll quickly discover the answers. In one book we’ve gathered together community resources, from where to get your cat spayed to where to find a reasonable meal for a low-income senior. Check out the Arts and Entertainment section for inspiration for a night out: Will it include live music and dancing, a night at the theater or perhaps a reading at a bookstore? Whole chapters are devoted to kids, with information on child care centers and sports leagues, as well as education, both public and private. The Outdoors & Recreation chapter offers hundreds of options for biking, hiking, fishing or enjoying parks. To contact a local government official, turn to the Government chapter; for information on boards and commissions, flip to Public Officials. In addition to the thousands of listings inside, you can visit www. and discover even more. Online you’ll also find information about our surrounding communities, including Stanford, Menlo Park, Atherton, Portola Valley, Woodside and Mountain View. Our cover photo this year — of 4-year-old Isaac Moore taking a close-up view with a magnifying glass of the grasshoppers, beetles, spiders and roaches at the Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo in November — was shot by Veronica Weber. If you’ve got suggestions for what else we could include in Info, please email We appreciate your feedback.
