Hey S.F., Stop Throwing Your Food Containers in the Gutter
Today our news blog The Snitch alerted us to a new Travel + Leisure list (of which we always wait with bated breath) that ranked our beautiful metropolis the 11th dirtiest city in the country. Even D.C. is cleaner! And the purported cause of all our filth and trash? T+L cites a 2011 study that found the biggest cause of pollutants in the bay was empty food containers, most commonly fast food. Whoops.

Neither piece of news reflects the super-local, organic, sustainable, compostable, yadda yadda yadda food culture we've come to know and love around here. So let's clean up our act, so we can be named at the top of the only list that matters: being the best goddam food city in the country.
