NP - System of A Down - Sat Statue
For some reason there was no lunch at home today, and everyone went back to sleep before lunchtime. So I had to go out and buy some horrible junk food. But I noticed my deo was running low, so I decided to take a long-cut and go to Al-Fair MQ and buy some, and pick up some milk and bread while there. And what do I see there but this:
(that pic was taken at home, not at the shop, for the record)
Basically its a non-plastic bag, which you can use again and again for your shopping and anything else.
Interesting move from ESO, and one that I like very much. Lets hope it catches on. Check out the back, it seems someone is a System Of A Down fan :p
Bring Your Own Bag. So guys, go out and buy your ESO bags, say no to plastic. Why? Well, read this, from http://www.cleanup.com.au/
- Plastic is a recyclable resource.
- Plastic bags are manufactured from non-renewable resources - oil and gas.
- Just 8.7 checkout bags contain enough embodied petroleum energy to drive a car 1 km (2)
- If plastic is not recycled, this embodied energy is lost from the resource chain.
Anyway, Im not sure where you can get these bags, apart from Al-Fair MQ. But I'm sure theyre around. Heres the website of the Environmental Society of Oman, in english and arabic
P.S. the food, as expected, was terrible. I swear someone should open a quality healthfood place here. Oh, if there already is one, please let me know.
