The thing is I think there are enough other people out there who want, ah that was an honest mistake, would like to see the same things happen. Why do I think this? Because I did very small scale reusable bag give away day at a local health food store recently. There I had my plastic bag petition for people to sign (please feel free to keep signing http://www.randomcharlotte.com/2013/05/loading.html). And although most people thought I was insane person sitting outside of their grocery store (and rightly so) and were reluctant to sign the piece of paper, I did see a real interest in plastic waste reduction. And I really felt like this bag ban was doable, and made me not want but wish to see it happen even more.
Now maybe I have been doing too much yoga or reading too many inspirational quotes online, but I wish (did not say want) to end with a quote from Mahatma Gandhi which says "as a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him". So go out there, stop wanting, start being the change and lets make all these things happen. It would really help me out if I could check off some items on this list. Thanks a bunch.
