Italians Ban Plastic Bags!

I know...for a FACT that I am VERY bad at this. 

Sadly, I have about 20 reuseable grocery bags...but yet, I ALWAYS seem to forget them at home.  OR.. I'll remember them and put them in the car-but FORGET to take them in...

SIGH........

Anyway-According to the BBC, Italy has some seriously bad issues with plastic bags and they are banning them.  They use 20 billion bags a year!!  That's roughly 300 per person.

Um. Yeah.  That's just LITTLE Italy... imagine what the world is doing?  Myself included.

So... I'm going to make a more conscience (sp?) effort and USE my recycleable bags.

How about you?  What are you planning in the new year to recycle?
