I love sarcasm, and probably use it way too much to communicate my ideas sometimes, so it's no surprise that I loved 'The Majestic Plastic Bag'. I came across this 'mockumentary' this morning and thought it was a great way to shed light on the evilness that is a plastic bag. The video is part of the California Plastic Bag Ban and was made by Heal the Bay to highlight the alarming reality of the plastic bag pollution situation in California. Check it out:
Also, if you are in Jordan, then you need to get involved in the UNESCO "Balash Kees بلاش كيس" campaign which aims to:
Reduce the use of plastic bags by major supermarkets in Jordan and change consumer behaviour.
This can be achieved by:
- Increasing awareness of the public on the negative environmental impact of plastic bags in Jordan.
- Promotion of environmental-friendly alternatives.
Help add your voice to the "Balash Kees" campaign and urge supermarkets and shoppers in Jordan to put an end to plastic bags once and for all!
For more info, take a look at the campaign's Facebook page here and find out what you can do to help spread their message.
