Okay, the truth is I don't really practise recycling in my household like most of you environmentalist out there but one thing that I'm very proud of and will continuously do so is saying no to plastic bags whenever I shop for groceries every weekend. It's very hard to begin with at first, thankfully I have a strong arm candy a.k.a my husband to help me with that =) It's the least I can do to save the environment for the future generation and I'm more than happy to support the movement in line with that. Turns out, I'm not the only one who believe in it because the very beautiful Deanna Yusoff sharing the same sentiment as well, wink2
