Change the world Wednesday, on Friday!
click on the title

I have taken this latest challenge as a "stupid" american, well I am an Alaskan.

I have stopped using plastic bags, for groceries. you know the kind?

THAT kind.
I will not bore you with facts.
google it, you will find plenty.

I am using cloth bags now, you can get them everywhere.
even some of them are made of recycled plastic, how cool is that?
and if you go to thrift stores they are even cheaper.
it is amazing what we throw away.
whether it is money it's self or destroying the planet, what is the difference.
all you have to do is care.

Good on you Shan, we have banned the old bags here in Oz; we have a three bin system. Rubbish (for the tip), green waste (for mulching and composting), Recycle (for recycling)Theres a 10cent deposit on all drink cans/cartons/bottles and soon to be a deposit on fast food wrapping to keep that off the streets...and you know what? it's still not enough!

it is easy and it is hard.
I am but a drop of water in the ocean.
I am still doing it though and it feels great!
