Samedi signes - Bon conseil


Translation:  15 minutes in the hand, 150 years in nature!

I'd like to see more of these banners in the U.S!  From my experience there, France is much more committed to recycling.  Maybe one day it will be a priority here.

A great Parisian shot. It is a pity that the French don't have the same attitude about cigarette butts, which also take an extremely long time to disintegrate. One could make a life-sized model of the Eiffel Tower from the cigarette butts that litter the surrounding streets of Paris.
Bon weekend

Yes, on that point, we made very good things. But there's still a lot to do, let's go on!

What a fantastic signe! An important world wide message.

I keep a small collection of ECO-BAGS on my car front seat to remind me to take them inside for shopping!
Arretez avec les sacs plastiques, non, V de B?!

Unrelated, but I love the photograph at the top of your blog.

Elizabeth, you'll be glad to hear that in Paris, there will soon be a stiff fine for dropping cigarette butts!

Plastic bags are disappearing fast here in Australia also, thank goodness. Enjoy your Sunday Virginia.

Once I started carrying my own cloth grocery bags...I feel justawful when I forget them...

Don't worry, as soon as they figure out there's not enough oil to power cars AND make plastic bags, they'll stop making bags.

Perth Daily got to it first; plastic bags are gradually being reduced and a lot of places now ask if you want a bag rather than automatically give you one. I've also noticed an increase in paper bags which can be recycled. A good message V.

I agree with you. Usually I go into a grocery store with a cloth bag or bags. Not so good at other stores, though.

totally...they are not distributed now of course, legally. La France, my inspiration anti-plastique!

Big discussion at my food co-op—we no longer provide plastic bags for carting home your food, but should we stop providing plastic sacks for fruits & veggies? We should at least reuse them, no?

San Jose CA banned the use of plastic bags this year. Stores will provide a paper bag, but they must charge consumers 10 cents per bag by law. I almost always forget my reusuable bags.
