Aaron recently wrote about the need to ban plastic bags and bottles. Although I don't agree with banning plastic bottles (at least they're recycleable!), I do agree that plastic bags are unnecessary. I remember learning in chemistry how much oil (petrochemicals) were involved in the production of plastic, and it was astounding. I've never made the step to consciously cut down on plastic dependence in my life, but it's about time I do!

This bag seems pretty badass - it's made by ACME, and I've always wanted to own something by ACME.

So friends, (lame music starts playing), think about how you can help save the environment. The penguins ... the ones in Antartica ... they need your help. So please, please... stop using plastic when necessary.

Hah, seriously though. Give it a thought and give it a try. If I (selfish, lazy, self-centered, has doubts about certain aspects of global warming) can make an effort, so can you.

if you go to IKEA, they now are charging money per plastic bag you use. That's a great thing since i know people who have taken PACKETS of that stuff for random crap. I'm not naming any former Japanese roommates that I used to live with in Irvine or nothing... but.. he stole them and used them for trashbags...

ok. the point is.. some places are making the move to it. Trader Joes and Whole Foods both come to mind as well.. Damn tree-huggers.
