I love my nylon shopping bags--strong, durable, lightweight, fun colors. And see how tiny the orange one stuffs into its own pocket? I keep two of them in my purse so I'm never without my own bags for groceries, books or any stray purchase. These even have a clip to attach to a belt. One year I gave them as extra Christmas gifts and created a lot of enthusiasm for taking an easy step to improve our environment--no more plastic bags choking sea turtles, etc.
I mention these today because Bish Denham at RandomThoughts posted a reminder that today is Blog Action Day and the theme is Climate Change. Any change in our behavior that we do and what we post on our blogs raises awareness and maybe will keep us from one of the dystopian worlds some of us imagine in our writing--worlds where mankind screwed up this great planet so bad that only a few survive and have to start civilization over. Hey, we don't want that in reality--for ourselves, our kids or grandkids.
