It's green...

...the biodegradable garbage bags at supermarkets! Hee hee, just a very quick one for now, in response to Wiz earlier. Biodegradable garbage bags are in green, and you can find them in various sizes under the brands Sekoplas or First Choice. Perhaps there are more, but these are 2 brands that I'm familiar with.... :)...

he he he apala Jules ni rajin dia berusaha to prove me wrong. But for the record, I am not lying to you for the sake of my intergrity. But thanks for checking out the colour coding for the biodegradable plastic bags.

Once a Malaysian company produced garbage bags made from ubi or something and they were not green. Their effort was highlighted on TV1 kalu tak silap I. I have been searching for it ever since tak jumpa2. There was one time Carrefour had written on their white plastic shopping bags that theirs were biodegradable and those were the ones yang berderai in my laci right now. But when I asked Carrefour recently, they said they don't supply anymore, neglecting to mention to their customers about the change. I made a mistake of saying Tesco when for a fact what I had in mind was Carrefour not tesco's bag yang biodegradable. I apologize for that.

I am not competing on who recyles more and who does more for the Earth but suffice to know myself that I am doing something for our mother Earth by not littering, by going to the nearby park with kids with a plastic bag(not a biodegradable one) to collect as much rubbish strewn in the lake and near the side walk, by having seperate bins for each plastic, glass and leftover food, by rolling down the window screen whilst waiting for my kids instead of waiting in the car with the aircond on, by bringing my own clear bekas to pasar malam and have the vendor isi bekas tu with tau fu fah. I remembered doing this even when I was in University 15 years back. I refused the polystyrene packaging for my food. I was always with my own container. Well I do my bit, as much as I can.

Don't be angry when you see people using the hyper market's plastic bag jules, maybe they too forgot to bring their own bags and were angry at themselves, maybe they collect the plastic bags and make flowers out of them for extra income, maybe they fold them in little ketupats (like my aunt does) and make decorations or maybe they prefer those free plastic bags to put their rubbish in instead of buying the black ones to save money or maybe they are ignorant like me who honestly thought those were biodegradable until someone like you enlightened us. Just maybe.

oi, memang mcm days of our lives lah awak ni! hee hee...

like i said before la, we each hv the right to do things the way we want, it's a free country, we are free individuals. i definitely am not the one to say you are wrong in how you do things. it's a matter of personal opinion. but for 1malaysia to materialise, i do believe that there are certain basic thing that we need to figure out together, collectively, as a whole bigger picture, esp if we want to be regarded as an 'advanced' society...

nak mencelah... PETRONAS had launched its Ecoplus degradable garbage bags. currently sold at major mesra stations and if i am not mistaken (i have to check with the team) it's also sold at jusco.

another environmental conservation effort, brought to you by PETRONAS. :)
