Whilst reading The Cotton Patch blog I discovered a wonderful group trying to reduce the amount of plastic shopping bags being used and discarded.
Here is their web release:
Let’s do something positive to reduce the hideous number of plastic bags being used – 1 million are consumed per minute globally – of which hundreds of thousands end up in the oceans.
the idea is to get together with people in your local community, drink wine and make reusable cloth bags (from old duvet covers, curtains from charity shops etc) and hand them out to the unsuspecting public for free on specified dates outside different supermarkets.
meet new people, do something marvellous for the planet and beat other pods (groups) of baggers with your morsbag tally.
go to www.morsbags.com to be a part of a wonderful thing!
p.s. non-commercial/ non-profitable – just full of beneficial things for everyone, especially whales!
