Plastic Ain't My Bag Initiative

This is from We Are What We Do a movement out of England. Read below to find out more-
"We're not another charity. We're not an institution. We Are What We Do is a movement. We'd like to inspire people to use their everyday actions to change the world. Whoever they are. And wherever they are. And that includes you.

We've created 100 simple, everyday actions that can improve our environment, our health, and our communities and make our planet and the people on it much happier. We started by putting these actions into a book but it rather burst its bindings. Today it has gained momentum, gathered community and become a global movement with two books and over 500,000 registered actions."

I love that they give you tips on how to decline a plastic bag... the people at the cash registers are on automatic pilot and I usually have to repeat myself at least two times to make sure they don't give me a plastic bag.
