  1. Could this get any more ironic? [http://tinyurl.com/2m2ua4]

    The ‘I AM a Plastic Bag AND I’m 100% Recyclable’ bag has been created by the Progressive Bag Alliance. The ‘progressive’ alliance is dedicates its time to ensuring that plastic bags are recycled, reused, and disposed of properly.

    Why? Probably something to do with being founded by the big plastic bag manufacturers. The tat is on sale on eBay, where it also lists some ‘arguments’ about why not to miss out on the bag.

    Starting with the ‘myth’ that ‘plastic bags are single use’. Tell that to a turtle.

  2. Fantastic inspiration for my Year 9 students Eco Bag project. Any other information you have would be really useful and very much appreciated.
