Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edward Humes investigated the trail of 102 tos of trash -- the amount of garbage that the average American is on track to produce in a lifetime, which is more than any other people in the world.  The author came to Chico to interview ChicoBag founder Andy Keller for a chapter Humes calls "Chico and the Man", and recounts the history of the plastic bag.
