It's Plastic Bag Free Day. Let's embrace this......

Most of us use them every day, the thin plastic bags used by almost every retailer we visit. Then, when you arrive home, you’ll quickly remove them and add them to the rubbish.

International Plastic Bag Free Day is dedicated to heightening awareness about these and very real and pressing issues brought about by this most popular of disposable carrying devices.  Plastic bags remain in the world for anywhere from 100-500 years before finally decaying completely, and have a profound impact upon our environment as a result.

Just for today (for starters), we are asking to ditch the plastic.
