Plastic fantastic lover

I'm still looking at other people's blogs, and I must say it is a wonderful way to learn about what other people are thinking. How did we do this before blogs? Newspaper letters to the editor? Radio call-ins? How liberating blogs are for anyone who believes they have anything worth saying.

My favourite blog entry this year (at least so far!) is one on a blog called to infinity and beyond. As you can see from the picture I've reproduced here, there are people who are really giving the new eco-tax on plastic bags a lot of thought.

Now why didn't I think of that? I can't decide on whether it's because I sometimes do that already or because I'm too busy with other things that supposedly matter more.

Here are the instructions:

...if you don't have enough space to carry a cloth bag here is the solution in 6 easy steps ;-) It's fast, easy, saves you money and it helps save the environment by reusing the same bag!

1. Smoothen a plastic bag and fold in two
2. Fold again from the middle (the shape is now similar to a rectangle)
3. Fold the "rectangle" diagonally ...
4. ... until you have a triangle shape
5. Fold the handles into the slit of the triangle
6. Carry your neatly folded space-saving plastic bag in your pocket
