Plastic Fantastic?

One of my newly found trendy cloth bags that you will see me around town with.

Mo: You could be forgiven to think it´s the arrival of the newly born star, Daisy, that has got me to think in these terms, but ask the people around me and they will tell you it started a while back.
I have begun a personal vocation which consists of saying No To Plastic Bags. And it´s amazing what an amount of bags that you get offered daily!

"Every year, more than 500 billion plastic bags are distributed, and less than 3% of those bags are recycled. They are typically made of polyethylene and can take up to 1,000 years to biodegrade in landfills that emit harmful greenhouse gases. Reducing your contribution to plastic-bag pollution is as simple as using a cloth bag (or one made of biodegradable plant-based materials) instead of wasting plastic ones. For your next trip to the grocery store, BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag)."

Every little thing and act can help.

När jag var i Thailand köpte jag en "This is not a plastic bag"-väska som jag hade letat efter länge.

Förutom alla miljömässiga nackdelar med plastpåsar. Hur fult är det inte med en massa plastpåsar?
