Oh man, it’s been a while. But some totally awesome people in the City of Brotherly Love have made it their goal to rid Philly of plastic bags. It’s a goal after my own heart and for that, I must link to them.
Here’s the article they got in Philly.com and the Inquirer: http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/greenliving/163853266.html
And here’s the petition on Change.org: http://www.change.org/petitions/ban-plastic-bags-in-philadelphia
And here’s the link to the Green Philly Blog post: http://www.greenphillyblog.com/philly-represent/green-initiatives/july-26th-bag-philadelphia-plastic-day-a-petition-bloggers-unite/
Please go sign the petition and share the good news that Philadelphia is finally coming up.
(Private message to all of you reading this: I’ll be back tomorrow or the next day with a really good reason why I haven’t been posting. Trust me, it’s a good one.)
Ach, sorry about the long, long hiatus. I can’t really explain why I stopped posting. I guess it’s because I thought no one was reading.
From now on, I’ll post once a week. That should keep me backed up enough to just keep on going.
One IDNAB post, coming right up!
Daniel Burd don’t need a bag, that’s who. Check it here, IDNABers. The 11th grader figured out how to get rid of plastic bags – put the microbes on ’em!
I would have done this too if I was all smart like. Instead, I started this blog so I could just bitch.
Thanks to Discover Magazine for the article.
I put my iced tea and breakfast sandwich on the counter. The 7-Eleven Guy reaches for a bag. Our eyes meet. There is suspense.
“IDNAB,” I say.
“Trash bag,” 7-Eleven Guy says.
“Still, IDNAB,” I say.
“Trash bag,” 7-Eleven Guy says again.
I’m so stunned that I have no come-back. IDNAB did not work on this man. I wasn’t ready for such resolve at 8 am. His two words, said twice, had left me broken and beaten.
I will be ready next time.
You may have won the battle, 7-Eleven Guy, but the war is not over.
We shall meet again!
