If you don’t already subscribe to http://www.mymodernmet.com, I highly recommend it. It’s been a wonderful source of creative inspiration and good news. Recently, they published this article about a Japanese businessman (Hidetoshi Matsukawa) moved to create better shopping bags (with a team of like-minded people). They produced bags made of (deer) rice crackers and milk carton pulp after Matsukawa learned that 14 local deer had died from ingesting plastic bags.
Let’s stop complaining about our problems (and each other) and DO something to be part of the solution (I’m telling myself this, too)!
