Bag World

I was trying to think what to do with all those bags that you get everytime you go to the store.   Even if you bring your own bags, they still try to put the stuff in plastic bags before they put it in the ones you brought.  And no matter what they tell you, these bags are not recycled.  They are just collected and put in dumps.  We are swimming in a sea of plastic.  We

are drowning in plastic. Worse, these bags are made from petroleum... Yep, the same thing we’re fighting in Iraq for.  I collected these bags over one year. 


So take one big step for humankind: carry your own bags to the store.
