My Favorite Bookstore is Going Green

I am pleased to know that my favorite bookstore is now taking part in saving the Earth by using recycled paper bags. I went to National Bookstore yesterday to buy something for my friends and was glad to see that almost everyone who just had their transactions carry recycled paper bags instead of plastic bags. With over 80 branches nationwide, National Bookstore is the biggest bookstore chain in the country so using recycled paper bags is a big step in saving the Earth.

Paper Bag
The message is very clear…
Recycle

They still use plastic bags for heavy items though. I just hope they could find new ways soon on how to pack heavy items using sturdy yet Earth-friendly materials. Each family brings 1,000 plastic bags every year. These plastic bags will all get dumped into landfills which means more toxic wastes. So it is best to turn down plastic bags in store and use paper bags instead.
