Try going a day without plastic. In this touching and often flat-out-funny film, we follow “everyman” Jeb Berrier as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy for plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

Reuseables are the best

By Bhavani Krishna Iyer

LAST Saturday, as I stood patiently in queue to pay for groceries at a hypermarket in Petaling Jaya, I was consumed by a deep sense of guilt.

I had forgotten to bring my own shopping bag and I would have to find some means of getting my purchases to the car.

Get one up on Rumpelstiltskin by turning plastic shopping sacks into uber-artsy bookmarks. 

I really hate giving cash gifts.  Gift cards aren’t much higher on the “Hey, I burned lots of calories thinking of you” scale.  Even when the card’s end use fits the user, it’s still not very satisfying for me (wow, so it is always about me?).  Do you also need to up the personalization ante?  Here’s the recipe for what’s accompanying all those bookstore gift cards flying out of our house this holiday season:
