Going Nuts Over Green Bags


There had been an extensive publicity about carrying the Green Bags lately in Singapore.. The supermarkets and some retail shops encouraged the public to be conscious in their usage of plastics bags, and recycle if necessary.

On the first Wednesday of the month, there will not be any plastic bags issued to shoppers and if you do need a bag, you need to pay 10 cents per bag. Ikea itself do not issue plastic bags but you can pay for their plastic bags or buy a large recycle bag for your own use.

A local supermarket will give a 10 cents discount if you bring your own bag for every $10 you spent. It may sound like a little amount but it is alot of effort as this reduce the usage of plastic bags (which a conscious effort) and for every 10 cents you save, you could have saved alot when you stretch it over a long period of time.. Of course, I'd rather donate the 10 cents to charity every time i shop. If everyone were to do the same, we are helping to save the world - mindful in energy conservation and charity as well. There was a recent 'No spaghetti day' recently as wheat prices have escalated. Well if Singapore can do with a No Plastic Bags day, how about other ideas.. like:

No TV day
No Electricity Day (for domestic)
No Air condition Day
No Meat Day (Chinese do practise that, Catholics have no meat day on Fridays)
No Cars Day (Singapore has such a day, where you leave your car at home and take public transport for that day)

Well these are just some examples of how we can cut down on things or help to make our world a better place if we put a little bit of effort. I mean individually, it is not much not to watch TV or turn on the air con for a day but just imagine, if the world were to practise that, how much energy conservation we would be saving for the WHOLE WORLD!

I am a Green Bag collector. If I see anything I fancy, I'd be buying the whole range in different colours.. Can't help it.. hahaha.. Most of the collection I owned are contributions from my best friend, C. So if you do go anywhere and see one, think of me and my collection.. and do pick an extraordinary one for me...hahahah


Below: Several Green bags that are in my collection, that are interesting.
