The Mother Nature Network (, whose name may or may not remind you of the new Vitamin Water commercial, recently compiled a list of countries around the world that are banning plastic bags. Looking at the list in sum leaves me with a single thought, What the &$#* is the U.S. waiting for? We pride ourselves on being innovative, forward-thinking planetary caretakers (well, some of us at least) and we’re lagging waaay behind everybody on this list. Just look at Denmark!

Sigh. I’m off to eat a Danish and remind myself about the small steps we’re taking everyday here in the good old U.S. of A. Though I guess even if we’re not making astonishing progress I should at least be happy that someone else is! 🙂
