The Save 5000 Experiment!

Ugh! Why did they invent plastic bags in the first place? Aren’t we like two steps forward and then 5 steps backward in everything we do as humanity?

It shows how even a single person can do their bit and I was touched by her repeated attempts to correct her mistakes. Her son is also so enthusiastic about such good initiatives–goes to show that kids might really do better than us once they feel enthusiasm for something good! Rashmi started doing this after taking inspiration from another fellow blogger friend. I feel if you spread the word and awareness we can make a great difference. Thank you very much Rashmi–you can lead by your example 🙂

LOve and light ❤

Although the experiment said we had to use…
