There Is Hope

I've had so many heartening stories and experiences around plastic filter through my experience in the last couple of months, but haven't blogged them. Here's one. It's been widely reported and could be the start of a worldwide phenomenon. Why not publicise it among your friends, and suggest a similar ban? It started with one business deciding not to sell bottled water, and went from there. Just one person saying something can make a difference.

THE sleepy Southern Highlands hamlet of Bundanoon has voted to ban bottled water, just hours after the New South Wales Government announced its own H2O boycott.

At a community meeting, Bundanoon locals overwhelmingly supported the Australia-first ban on commercially bottled water, already agreed to by businesses in the town.

On the "one person" note, I always make a point of asking for "no (plastic) bag" when I'm shopping. But it's important to go further - to say WHY. I say something like "no bag please. It means a little less plastic in our environment"
