First step I took was to separate my garbage for recycling purposes. Papers, plastic bottles and glasses are separated into different garbage can. Every week my friends mom will come and collect the items to be sent for recycling. Just recently I started my second step in preserving earth..i say NO to PLASTIC BAG.
Yes fabulous people out there..buy a recycle bag, use it for ur next shopping trip or whenever u go to ur nearest grocer or ‘pasar’. I found my amazing bag at http://www.envirosax.com/ . Fret not when using this bag cos it’s washable and it can carry a weight up to 20 kg. isn’t that amazing peeps??? Plus it’s light weight and easily folded into a palm size.
* Thousands of marine animals and more than 1 million birds die each year as a result of plastic pollution
* The United Nations Environment Programme estimates that there are 46,000 pieces of plastic litter floating in every square mile of ocean.
* Plastic bags are often mistakenly ingested by animals, clogging their intestines which results in death by starvation. Other animals or birds become entangled in plastic bags and drown or can’t fly as a result.
* Even when they photo-degrade in landfill, the plastic from single-use bags never goes away, and toxic particles can enter the food chain when they are ingested by unsuspecting animals.
* Greenpeace says that at least 267 marine species are known to have suffered from getting entangled in or ingesting marine debris. Nearly 90% of that debris is plastic.

It’s so hot i didn’t even notice my take away dinner are getting cold as I was busy parading around the mall with my chic dinner/lunch tote!! Hahaha. So grab one the next time u eat there and do ur bit for charity as 50sen from each purchase of the bag will be donated to the GreenAid fund.
