One of the major concerns in conservation is the use of plastic bags. Plastic bags are given away too freely by many stores. The amount of waste is alarming as we are reaching tons of waste each year! Plastic waste is polluting the environment and we need to address it now.

There are several things being done to bring plastic recycling to the forefront where these plastic bags are concerned. Companies have started to take steps to reduce the number of plastic bags been given away in their daily operations.

Some Solutions

Some companies place recycling bins at their stores. When customers come back to the store they can bring their bags and recycle them easily. However, the number of bags leaving the store and the number returning are not quite equal with far more going out then coming back.

There are stores that even remove the use of bags. The stores have started to encourage the use of cloth shopping bags and some stores ask the customers to purchase their own bags. Some consumers have already jumped on the idea and bring their own bags when they go shopping. As an interest, many stores have already step up in educating the shoppers and even provide incentives for shoppers who bring their own shopping bags.

Some stores also use recycled plastic bags instead of new bags. These bags come from the old plastic bags and they allow for the bags to be used over and over without extra pollution during the production process.

Recycling – What you Should Do

As mentioned, you should have no problem recycling. There are drop off spots that are almost as popular as aluminum can drop off points. Your local recycling center should also gladly take the bags for you.

Another thing you can do is reuse the bags instead of putting them in the garbage. There are many ways to reuse the bags at home. They are pretty easy to reuse and you can carry stuff. They can be used in the garden as a plastic layer to cut weed growth, too. With a little imagination you can find many ways to recycle.

Plastic bags have no place in the landfills. It has been such a big concern that environmentalists have been speaking of banning them. The simplest solution is recycling. The option is available and it is made quite convenient. There really is no reason for so many of these plastic bags to be winding up in landfills. You can do your part by not throwing out them and recycling them instead.

Scientists now worry about the increase of the frequency and intensity of earthquakes. Is this a sign that our planet is just resonating with our own individual and societal psyche in 2012? Or, just a blip on the radar screen? Are we worried about it?

At least 111 people are confirmed killed in Samoa, neighboring American Samoa and Tonga. Officials in the Pacific region have expressed fears the toll will rise as rescue workers struggle to reach outlying villages. The quake hit the small cluster of Samoan islands in the South Pacific early Tuesday.

Around 220,000 people live on the two main islands which make up the nation of Samoa. The population of the U.S. island territory of American Samoa is about 66,000.

In Tonga, Lord Tuita, the acting prime minister, said at least seven people had been confirmed dead on the northern island of Niuatoputapu. Three others were missing and four people were being treated for serious injuries, he said. “The hospital on the island is reported to have suffered major damage; telephone communications has been cut as a result of damage to equipment and facilities on the island; homes and government buildings have been destroyed; the airport runway has been severely damaged making it impossible for any fixed wing aircraft to land,” a statement from the Tongan prime minister’s office said.

Meanwhile, there’s yet another earthquake getting attention.

A major earthquake that struck Indonesia this morning killing at least 13 people and injured hundreds more just from initial reports. The 13 were crushed when the quake collapsed buildings, said Rustam Pakaya, head of the Ministry of Health’s crisis center. Hundreds more were injured, he said. The state-run Antara news agency said the earthquake “killed tens of people and destroyed hundreds of buildings including houses, shopping centers and mosques.”

My take is that we’re swimming in some deep waters for which there are no normality.
