I’ve just watched this excellent mockumentary showing the Life cycle of a Plastic Bag, narrated by Jeremy Irons.
It shows again just how hardy these creatures are – highlighting why we should really not be using them. It would be super if we could all stop using plastic entirely.
I challenge every one of you to not use any plastic bags for a month. By then you will have created a new habit, and hopefully no longer be in need of a petroleum fix.
Leave cloth shopping bags in your car and take them out as you arrive at the shops, keep a small key ring type bag in your handbag, take a backpack with you – anything.
Just stop using plastic – I dare you 🙂
