Plastic bags

In Australia in 2002 there were approximately 80 million plastic bags that ended up as litter!

Over at Quit Your Day Job I’m doing my little bit to remind everyone to remember to knock back plastic bags at the supermarket or takeaway.

I’m going to be setting up an Green friendly section in my blog roll for people who mention the post or display the following graphic:

It’s a tiny bit of fun to remind us that any time we remember not to get plastic bags we help the environment out even just a little! So if you want to do a little link exchanging or you think it’s a cool idea post a comment over at Quit Your Day Job and let everyone know!

A couple of people who have already done it are:
Life Can Come at You Fast
Tech News

Just wanted to note also that Tech News has got some US stats too the most important and I think this is the message I’m trying to get across is:

In New York City alone, one less grocery bag per person per year would reduce waste by 5 million lbs. and save $250,000 in disposal costs.
