“It’s too soon!” I hear some of you shouting. Well, I hate to break it to you, but Christmas is ten weeks away and, as some people like to get their festive season organised sooner rather than later, I thought that now would be a good time to start this conversation.
I live in a suburb called Glen Eden. Generally speaking, it’s a lovely place to call home. Surrounded by trees, with the gorgeous Waitakere Ranges just to the west, nice local parks and plenty of native birdlife. However, sadly, it wasn’t exuding particularly eden-like qualities today.
Actually, my mum does still use plastic bags. And she doesn’t compost. Sigh. How does the saying go?…grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, yadda yadda yadda. I’m working on it. The great news is, there are some things I can change. And one of them is the culture of single-use plastic bags at my local supermarket!
