    eye opening video which is incredibly disturbing.

    ALL countries should BAN the plastic bags.

    When were on the island in November I bought several bags from Lings for carrying our groceries. I think in one of the other forum conversations April is the cut-off date for using plastic bags so I figured I would get a jump on it...I also brought several bags in my suitcase. I try to use them as much as possible everywhere I go here in the states.
    I agree that it is a wonderful idea for many reasons...protecting animals (no.1) and protecting the environment (no.2) !!!!

    Just remember to wash the bags you get from the stores as they supposedly have some chemical that could be harmful (read that somewhere....)

    btw Andrea....I didn't watch the video as I was afraid of what I might see and then cry all day long.....:-(
    ARUBA....HOME AWAY FROM HOME
