22 April 2007 is Earth Day
Today, 18 April 2007, is BYOBD. (bring your own bag day) And the first Wednesday of every month will also be BYOBD.
Using plastic bag excessively is a waste of resources and do you know why our climate is getting warmer and warmer….
Plastic is made from Polyethylene which takes up to 1000 years to biodegrade. Most of these plastic bags end up in landfills that emit harmful greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2). Now, CO2 and other heat-trapping gases are responsible for retaining the heat in our atmosphere and thus, contributing to global warming. There's no doubt about it. The Earth is sick, very sick. We read about global warming and how it's affecting the earth everyday in the papers. (This paragraph is extracted from Chris’s blog.)
Let’s do our part to support a worthy cause and help the environment. So don’t forget to bring your bag when you go shopping at the supermarket today and make every day a BYOBD.
