When it comes to being green, you can always count on me on that.. now it is up to you what kind of green that would be..
So for Mommy Moments this week, as expected, my Earth Friendly Tip is to use your own eco bag. Never rely on PLASTICS, they won;t do you any good. For a time they maybe very helpful to you but there will come a time that all the plastics you used will get back at you. Remember what happened in Baguio City just a few days ago? When the landfill collapsed? What did you noticed? don’t tell me you didn’t? Oh well, if you really didn’t noticed what the mountain of garbage is made of, it’s mostly plastic! If only those people used their own bag instead of plastic bags, landfills will not be like that..
But really, how much plastics can we save? do you want me to do the math?
In one wet supermarket trip, we usually end up with more than 20 plastics. That comes from buying 5-8 kinds of meat where in each meat was placed in 2 plastic bags then placed in two big plastic bags. That would be 12 plastic bags if we buy 5 kinds of meat, same goes with sea food and beef. When it comes vegetables such as garlic, onion or the likes, they also put this in small plastic bags then again put in a bigger bags. That would be more than 5 bags for vegetables and same goes with fruits. We usually go to wet supermarket every two weeks, so in a month if don’t bring our own bag, that’s 40 plastic bags or more.. which all goes to waste then to landfills. We can reuse it right? but then again, in the end it still goes to the landfill.
Start bringing your bags now and help save the planet. It’s not that easy I know but when you get used to it, you will thank yourself for bringing a greener place for your kids.
