Bring me my soap-box
I have tried to ensure that this blog stays allotment related, after all it is called the Welsh Girls Allotment !, I have so far resisted the temptation to wander off topic as I have lots of opinions on varied topics but I have decided to include this item as it is an important issue. I am concerned with the ammount of plastic carrier bags that are in circulation, even the new 'greener' biodegradable bags aren't of much use because all they do is degrade into smaller pieces of plastic as opposed to disappering altogether. I was browsing the forum on the 'Its not easy being green' website and came across this article http://www.itsnoteasybeinggreen.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4427 The lady has set up a website called http://www.morsbags.com/ . On here it gives you worrying information about the damage that plastic bags cause in the environment and also gives you instructions on how to make your own cloth bags, to carry around with you for your shopping needs. I am by no means perfect, I still use plastic bags, I do not pretend to be holier than thou but surely every bag we can save has to to better - little steps will achieve a big end result !
