Plastic or Paper?
More and more people are getting more aware of the impact of our day to day activities to our environment. This is more evident in the new ordinances that some of the cities here in the Philippines have put into effect. Like now, in Las Piñas City, when you go to the malls or groceries, they don't use plastic bags anymore. Your purchases will be placed in paper bags or you bring your own recyclable bags. At first, like most new things, it can be quite a hassle, specially if you forgot to bring your own bag and you have to commute carrying all your purchases in brown paper bags without handles. But once you get used to it, and you think of how in your own little way, you have contributed to helping save our planet, then it definitely is worth the effort!
