"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Recycling Plastic Bags

The project:
Deliver the mysteriously multiplying plastic bag collection to the recycling center.


Why bother?
See previous discussion here.

Worth it?
Since raising my awareness about issues surrounding plastic bags (and the fact that we're not just talking grocery bags here), I find myself with more plastic than ever to recycle. I'm remembering to take my reusable bags to the store more often than not, but the sheer quantity of OTHER plastics is INCREDIBLE!
