It seems that everyone's number one way of being earth-friendly these days is taming the evil plastic bag.
So, our consumerism is encouraged, we stock our environment friendly Walmart tote* to the max with stuff produced in sweatshops and packaged in non-recyclable plastic, but it's okay because we're not using a plastic bag! What the? While our attention is focussed on things like plastic bags, "big business" continues to commit terrible environmental atrocities on a daily basis, how convenient.
Here's someone else (Joshua Allen -- street artist) 'taming the bag' but in a most ingenious way.
* yes, Walmart has jumped on the green bandwagon and it now produces it's own "earth friendly" tote. Can you imagine?
Thanks, Heather for showing me this!
