JEPS talk and Competition

On the 9th November, I went to Jeps (Jalan Empat Primary School) in Bangi, where Carrier International Sdn Bhd, the Air Conditioner company, had organised an Eco friendly competition. KFE was invited to give a talk about the dangers of plastic bags. I was also invited to be one of the judges for the competition. The students had to get into a group and make an original, eco-friendly, useful object. The entries ranged from photo frames made from magazine pages cut and rolled up, to a motorized scooter made from a painted board and a broken scooter. The 3 winners were: an electric fan made from a basket and wires, a self watering plant and a house made from all sorts of different recycled materials. I had the honor of planting a tree for Kids For Earth in the school and signing the plaque! All in all it was a great day for Kids For Earth and thank you very much to Carrier, Rico, JEPS and ALL the students for making it such a great experience!

Reducing and How Awesome Tote Bags Can Save The World.

So it appears that my last post went, what could be called smoothly. It recieved basically good feedback, hopefully all of you who read it are having a rip-roaring good time throwing recycleable materials into their respective bins (1,000,000 points if we save the Earth guys!) and  Gabby didn’t throw any bricks at me. Although it may have been my imagination when someone attempted to smother me in my sleep with one of our Kids For Earth Tote Bags.

Speaking of which,  Oh My God have any of you noticed how STYLISH those things are? And their so comfortable too! I proudly use mine at school all the time because as well as being a major fashion statement those things are VERY roomy. I’ve stuffed up to 4 folders in there at a time and not a single rip. Not to mention the BARGAIN price I got mine at. I mean RM12? Their practically free! Well…not really but you catch my drift. The point is those bags are just amazing. Like if Chuck Norris, Cadburys chocolate, Cobra Starship and Greenpeace got together and made a baby, that baby would come out wearing a Kids For Earth Tote Bag.

But the Kids For Earth Tote Bag is not only for me to cart my books around school. In fact they have a much nobler purpose than simply helping me heave my insanely heavy books from class to class (just so you know the books feel FEATHER LIGHT in my Kids For Earth Tote Bag.) They have been created for the sole purpose of defeating their arch nemesis, the plastic bag. It’s time for the plastic bag to meet its timely end. The plastic bag has run free for years, being used for a whole total of, about one shopping trip then being carelessly chucked aside, never thought of again. Watch the Billy the Plastic Bag video in the older posts and you’ll see the horror that follows the use of a single. plastic. bag.

If we all trade in our simple one time use, non-biodegradeable plastic bags for a fantastic, reuseable, massive and very attractive Kids For Earth Tote Bag then just think of all the good we’ll be doing for the Earth. No more plastic bags drowning little adorable sea creatures! No more plastic bags taking up room! No more plastic bags not biodegrading and not going back to Mother Nature! We’ll be REDUCING plastic bag usage!

“But Miho! Plastic bags are free! Kids For Earth Tote Bags are not.”

Ah yes. The Big Conflict. Money VS Earthly Good. Sadly money often wins this fight while Earthly Good whimpers in a corner, but let me tell you  boys and girls NOTHING in life is free. Plastic bags come at a price, even if you can’t see it right now. And yes, that price is a little higher than RM12. If you want to contribute to a happy, healthy world simply buy yourself a tote bag, any tote bag and use it instead of a plastic bag. Although you are clearly mad if you don’t think that the super amazing Kids For Earth Tote Bag is THE ultimate, plastic bag butt kicking machine for you. Plus I hear making a difference really warms up your soul and ups your good karma levels. So what are you waiting for? Go buy one right now!

PS. Wow I said Kids For Earth Tote Bag alot. If  you go and count up the number of times I’ve said it in this post alone, I will go do something awesome for the environment, of your choice, and post it up in one of my blog posts.
