BYOB’s yer uncle

That way!

This Bring Your Own Bag Day thing has gotten quite a few people in a tizzy. I didn’t know of it until a friend mentioned that he was charged 10c per plastic bag when he went shopping. He claims it isn’t unreasonable, given that, ‘in Taiwan, you buy anything in the 7-Eleven also have to pay for the plastic bags’.

But what’s this news of people wanting discounts for reusing/recycling bags? WTF?

Anyway, going green can be interesting, especially if you visit treehugger.com’s section on ‘How to green your sex life‘. It’s got very very enlightening bits of information such as:

The meat industry is immensely resource intensive and accounts for 70% of the water pollution in the US. Reducing your meat consumption is one of the greenest things you can do…

…There are some very strong rumors going around that vegetarians have the best tasting love juices (though some items from the vegetable kingdom you may want to avoid, like asparagus and garlic). ..

Mmmmmm… more V8 all round.
