First State-wide Ban on Plastic Bags

Hawaii is the first state to pass a state-wide ban on plastic bags, effective July 1, 2015.

YEAH!!  Go Hawaii!!

I hope all of you are NOT using store-used plastic or paper bags when shopping.  Both are environmental nightmares and about equal in terms of harm.  Get yourself some bags and take them with you when shopping–for ALL your shopping.  Start asking for your purchases to be put in your own bags everywhere you go.

I have been using bags for food purchases, but now I’m going to up the ante and start taking clean bags for all purchases.

There is a film that is referenced in the Mercola article I saw this morning:  BAG IT.

I found it on Netflix and could instantly download it on the Roku.  I’ll take a look at it soon, though I am so far behind on watching documentaries.  Sometimes the psychic burden of watching all that’s wrong with our world–there’s so much–is just too much, and I have to take a break.

Here’s the whole article if you want to read it:  http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/07/26/no-to-plastic-bags.aspx?e_cid=20120726_DNL_artNew_1
