Tip/Thought of the Week: Neither Paper nor Plastic
We all know that the earth is not in the best shape these days and I often feel like I am not doing my part to help. While I'm not going to buy a Vespa or start wearing pants made of hemp, there are smaller changes we can all make. An easy one is to not take the bags provided when you go to the store. I KNOW that you are all carrying around purses the sizes of Buicks, so just plop in the new book you bought instead of getting a bag and then putting it in your purse anyway. I walk to the grocery store and it is much easier to carry my food home in a backpack than to schlep with 5 plastic bags. If you drive to the store, keep a few canvas bags in your trunk. We would all be better off with a healthier planet and without that ever-growing pile of plastic bags under the sink (oh you know you have one!).
