One of the worst curses of the last century, and indeed, it is still being felt in parts of the world today, is the invention of the bag. Shopping online for a nifty new and functional bag, you are, quite rightly, flabbergasted at this short article’s opening lines. It started so nicely, hinting at the fact that there are bags, shopping bags, school and varsity bags, medicine bags, workshop bags, you name it, that making a positive difference to your life.
Or they could. And then the article takes its dramatic diversion, suggesting to all and sundry, unwitting readers and those with a conscience, that the invention of the bag has to date, been a blight on humankind. So it has been, in more ways than one. The story so far then. What happened was this. So many years ago to the day, the plastic bag was invented. And believe it or not, it was manufactured from oil!
One of the worst polluters known to humankind today. Oil and plastic bags, well, two of the worst polluters then. Fortunately, much has been done, and much is being done to save the world, and all its natural flora and fauna, what has survived thus far, from the plastic bag blight. Today, instead of storing up and discarding such cursed bags, you have the pick of choices, where it is going to be your carry all for shopping or essential medical or toiletry requirements, of beautifully designed bags that have been fabricated from recycled and re-used materials.
And if your brand new bags have not inhered from recycled or re-usable resources, it has been fashioned from natural materials that are both friendly and kind to the environment and offer up holistic possibilities to help enhance your life.
