As most of us just survived 2010 (or at least you, who is reading this), I hope I can survive for 2011,2012,2013, etc.
For once, just stop using plastic bag, drive less, off the switch, and take the effortless and basic action where the kids could do better than you. Either you believe or not, my trip to China make me realize the Chinese actually had more environment conscious compare to Malaysian. (Which surprised me because Chinese is kind of famous with it's poor .... well....personality)
Most of the places I visited charge for the plastic bag. Where Malaysia just started today (at least from what I read from The Star - Thanks to Lim Guan Eng. p/s: While the plastic maker is very unhappy with this proposal.)
