An Even Greener Emerald Isle

This is what Ireland is doing to take their part in greening up the Earth:

When you go to the grocery store here they don't ask you "paper or plastic?" at the checkout. Instead they ask you if you would like to purchase a plastic bag. Of course, if you forgot to bring a big bag or just plain didn't know this would happen to you then you either purchase a plastic bag or you carry all your groceries home in your arms. After spending about 5 Euro on plastic bags I finally invested 1 Euro into one of these reusable bags. What a great idea! Can you imagine this happening in the United States?

What are you doing to help green up the world?
