Plastic Bag is NOT Cool

Modern technology Owes ecology An apology



I guess everyone has heard about Global warming, but how many of us have actually helped save our dying Earth? Me myself has been ignorant because as selfish as I am, I used to say there are billions of people in the world, it makes no difference if I am trying to make a change alone. But IF one person would say this in a day, imagine how many billions of people who are just like me, are not contributing anything to make the world a better place to live.

What I can do for my Earth is not much, but IF everyone is doing it then it would be a lot. I have stopped using plastic bags. I carry shopping bags in my handbag whenever I go.

Don't blow it - good planets are hard to find. 

Do you know 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 - Source from Just Say no to Plastic Bags

This was such an important post. We always do think that " I'm just a small person, there's no difference to the World in my acts. " One becomes billions. :)

Thank you for all the sweet comments. Your blog here is lovely! About your post, cities are starting to ban plastic bags where I live, and it's a wonderful thing! It promotes using reusable tote bags instead of wastefully using plastic. I hope this movement grows bigger.

Take care!

Hello dear! how are you?
Sorry for the late answer, everything gets so busy when the year ends.

Anyway, I love this post! You are so right, the philosophy student in me applauds to what you write :)

I also try to use fabric bags for shopping, only buy beverages in glass bottles, save energy whenever I can at home etc.

Thumbs up for your commitment!
