At the moment I live in Macau, a town that lacks in environment education and good government policies to prevent waste and pollution.
One of the problems is the use of small, tiny plastic bags, that have no other use than to carry a small cake or a soda can until one gets home.
The other problem (and I think this is worldwide), is the use of paper napkins at home. For me, none of these habits make sense.
SOLUTION? Why not knit those small plastic bags to create envelopes for cloth napkins?
