Going green isn’t easy. It seems that for every one thing you’re doing right, there are ten things you’re doing wrong. We all know how bad plastic bags are for the environment. It takes forever for them to decompose, and they release toxic substances. In order not to use as many plastic bags, you invest in a reusable and environmentally friendly Ecobag.
So far so good. But then you go to the supermarket, and you find yourself buying bottled water and laundry detergent bottles, bread in a plastic bag, and packaged snacks. You come home feeling even worse about yourself. We want to be kind to the planet – we just wish it were easier to do (and please don’t give us a lecture now).
