presenting a new section…

I like making New Year resolutions, I keep most of them.. and they act as a good way of giving yourself a kick… as do Chinese new years resolutions… easter plans… birthday resolutions… and… um… Bonfire night bangers (aka resolutions)…

Well kinda.


Presenting the first of my new years resolutions:

1) A Year Without Plastic Bags

Basically, a year… without using plastic bags. I guess exactly how, will evolve as the year goes on.. its going to take practice and skill… having decided I wanted to do this next year, I promptly got a new bag from a shop without thinking… doh!

SO, to make it work, I’ll be donating £1 to charity everytime I use a new carrier bag.

The theory is, I don’t want to use them anymore… but its a habit. A clear goal makes it easier and hopefully by the end of the year… no more plastic bags.

  1. Wow, my goal for last year was to reduce the number of plastic bags I used…not to eliminate use entirely! Good luck- I don’t know how many times I ended up at the grocery store kicking myself for leaving my re-usable bag at home*hahaha*
    I definitely reduced use though…guess I should buck up now too…
