Go ban the plastic bag.

Posted on May 26th, 2010 by Angela in Canada

Wow after a hectic few weeks of training camp for my summer job at one of Manitoba’s beautiful provincial parks and the first long weekend of the season, I have a few moments to breathe.

So I am sharing with you this poignant You Tube video about the evils of plastics.

I swear I will never use a plastic bag again.

What about you?

    Quality. Els, hope you’ve got a cartoonist to put some “meat” on those sketches? Would be hilarious..

    Heart-breaking video…

    For sure, we have gone way too far. Recycling efforts are nice, but maybe too little too late?

    Anyhow, I don’t think the solution is simply “don’t use plastic bags.” There is another hope on the horizon. The face of consumerism itself is changing. Our consciousness is changing. With the internet especially, consumerism is taking a much more “mental” turn, and I think this is good news for our environment.

    I see this JUTE / HEMP alternative is taking off but I still forget to take my own (BYO bag) into the supermarket – although I often refuse any plastic bags preferring instead to balance as inspired by crackerjack in the 70′s…
