Abandonment issues

Abandoned grocery cart

Rogue grocery carts—we see them loose in our neighborhoods. February is “National Return Shopping Carts to the Supermarket” month. I know it's not February yet, but hopefully, this cart won't have to wait until then to get returned to its rightful owner.

“National Return Shopping Carts to the Supermarket” month is not quite a holiday. It’s more of an awareness-raising event, created by a frustrated grocer. Anthony Dinolfo launched the event back in 1969, the year that Neil Armstrong walked on the moon . (“I wouldn’t be surprised if he found a shopping cart in one of the craters,” Dinolfo once told an interviewer.)
