LOVE EARTH

We all love shopping, don’t we? And the more we shop, the more cute plastic shopping bags we get to use to carry back home the purchased items....:)

We gotta admit though, that one of our most powerful acts that actually contribute to a wasteful lifestyle would be, well, the plastic shopping bag. It's made from non-renewable fossil fuels, is completely non-biodegradable, and sadly, is usually made to be used once, and thrown out.

Such plastic bags might get reused once or twice, and some recycling programs will collect them. However, the vast majority of plastic shopping bags end up in landfills, or end up clogging natural ecosystems and posing a major threat to wildlife.

In responding to such an upsetting phenomenon, let us now start using friendly shopper bags. Let’s be more green. Act green.

Therefore, I present you, project LOVE EARTH.




I’ve produced 100 LOVE EARTH shopper bags to give away for free to 100 people who wants to participate in living green in the simplest way. If you're interested, you can simply send me an email with the subject “LOVE EARTH”, and copy the below "letter" to be included in your email body along with your name, phone number and home address. From there, I’ll send you a shopper bag at no cost, so you can all start living green too...:)

“Dear earth,
I promise that I’ll start reducing my use of plastic shopping bags, and use friendly shopper bags instead whenever possible. I will make sure that the LOVE EARTH shopper bag is with me in all trips I make to the malls, markets and shops. And by this, I hope I can inspire others to live green too.”



Lastly, LOVE EARTH is my own personal project that I decided to initiate as my very first, small contribution to earth. I hope it does bring goodness to all of us...cuz hey, goodness spreads! :)


PS1: You can find my email address by clicking the "EMAIL ME" button on the left sidebar of this blog.

PS2: Only applicable for Jakarta residents...sorry peeeeeps....:)

I agree with your posts, the plastic can break down within a period of 100 years. a long time, every day people have consumed thousands of tons of plastics worldwide. it's time we start from ourselves to keep our earth. This earth is entrusted to our generation

wahhh Diana, idenya keren ,jujur sih gw emang udah pengen melakukan itu, yaitu bawa shopper bag sendiri setiap kali belanja, cuma kadang masih suka lupa bawa, tapi setelah melihat posting dan video kamu rasanya gak bs ngebayangin ya kalo nanti semua orang di indonesia pake shopper bag sendiri tiap kali belanja, pasti seru banget. By the way gw udah kirim emailnya, meskipun rumah gw di Bekasi mudah2an bisa dapat ya shopper bagnya, soalnya bagus bgt shopper bagnya, ukurannya gede dan warnanya hijau ( my favorite color )

angelsofthesilence said...

Shopping bags and carrier bags made of plastic have been popularly replaced by paper bags in many establishments.
Now, the those bags have been further delimited to recycled ones.
Unlike plastic bags however, that cause health and environmental repercussions because of the toxins from the plastic when disposed of and recycled improperly, those bags including recycle bags pose no threat to us and the environment.
