1000 Flowers for the Planet - #531 Take Away in Your Own Bag
Usually you know when you’re going to buy takeaway (take out) food. You’ve rushed home from taking the kids to their fifty different after-school extra-curricular venues and have no time or energy left to cook a meal, so you pop out to buy some fast food to save yourself from the grief of cooking (you may need to re-read Flowers 276 and 483). You know where you’re going, so take a reusable bag with you (or even a basket) and have the food put straight into that instead of receiving a new plastic bag. Plastic bags have been a big topic of conversation for many years. They’re not just at the supermarkets, they are received from many different venues and takeaway is one of them. When you carry reusable bags in the boot (trunk) of your car you are always prepared. All it takes is a little bit of thought on your part and the difference you make to the planet is huge. Don’t ever think that small actions don’t have massive consequences. Small ideas – big rewards.
