There has always been this fight for "plastic bag free world", but yesterday I read this blog post from last year that in Canada there was imposed 0,05 $ fee for a plastic bag in shops as a green step. Well, the author and comment was suggesting that it's not gonna make the difference and it would never be enough to prevent people from buying these plastic bags! I totally agree..
Even though we all use our own carrier bags, sometimes the plastic is not possible to avoid. Here on green carpet we go a little further with the plastic bags that still get in our home- we reuse them in various ways. One is for general waste that's not recycled where we are. Another is for packing stuff when travelling and moving home (which is slowly happening now).
But the most wonderful and characteristic for green carpet is to create new things from the plastic bags- bags, fruit trays, vase covers and other things.. The photo update will follow quite soon!
On green carpet there was a joke- if I give a second life to a plastic bag (home-done recycling 100%) which is already made of 50% recycled plastic, would that mean that the item I've created is made from 150% recycled material? :)
