SAY NO to plastic by reusing a sturdy shopper bag. A simple idea that was revived a few years back (just as being 'green' became trendy).
How good are you are at remembering to take along your reusable bag to the grocery store? I'm not great. I've resolved to change that while I've been doing some research on these bags (we are about to do a design of a shopping bag for the agency where I work).
While trawling the net I came across the above humorous take on the classic that I wanted to share. Perhaps you know it already but I had a good laugh as I'm sure there are plenty of 'greenwashed' smug twats who drive Hummers but absolutely had to have this bag as it is so trendy and was seen on the arm of many a celebrity...
I designed my own version ages ago but although the design was bought by a company it was never produced. The idea was you needn't take along a shopping list when shopping with this bag.
Is it enough to only adopt green practices if they are trendy and don't make too much of an impact on your lifestyle? Of course not. But I guess even if someone only buys less plastic or uses less electricity it is better than nothing. Cumulatively this will go someway to making a difference.
