Day 38 – Plastic Perils

by Dan


Today’s Daily Act was inspired by a friend who was inspired by this blog to do an act of simplification of his own. I think that’s what is known in the trade as a feedback loop! He discovered that he had a stash of carrier bags that had grown to epic proportions, so he bagged them up into one jumbo super-carrier bag and packed them off to recycling.

When I heard this, I had that guilty feeling that I too had such an unnecessary stash of the plastic perils in a cupboard. They compress down pretty well but when unleashed, the sheer volume of them was staggering. For what possible use were these waiting for? I knew not, so they are now gone!
