Green Post: Mother Earth Would Be Pleased
It would be interesting to see how Penang cope without plastic bags next year. January 1, 2011 would see plastic bag being banned in the whole state. It used to be No Plastic Bag Day in shopping complexes and hypermarkets on Mondays in July, 2010 and later it was No Plastic Bag Day on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday. Penang's Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng had announced that the No Plastic Bag Day would now be extended to everyday and to almost all business sectors to reduce the state's carbon footprint. That's a noble aim. Mother Earth would be pleased!
