In a bid to encourage more of us to re-use more environmentally-friendly bags, Sainsbury's are banning the disposable carrier bags (of which they get through 1.6 billion a year) for a day, and instead will be handing out "Bags for Life" - normally 10p each - to customers.
Click on the picture to read more about it... and then tell us what you think... Why just one day? Will it work? Do you/your family already use re-useable bags?
On Wednesday next week, Sainsbury's will also be selling the much sought-after "I'm Not A Plastic Bag" bags, designed by Anya Hindmarch. Find out how to get your hands on one here.

For those of you who - unlike me - have more than four and a half channels, it's worth checking the listings as there are some interesting sounding programmes on More 4, UKTV History and UKTV Documentary.
Let me know if you spot anything else that I've missed!
"a monumental music event that will bring together more than 2 billion people to combat the climate crisis. Live Earth’s 24 hours of music across 7 continents will deliver a call to action and the solutions needed to answer the call. Live Earth marks the beginning of a multi-year mass persuasion campaign led by The Alliance for Climate Protection to move individuals, corporations and governments to take action."

Well, these are two of the seventeen Sites of Meaning... Seventeen sculptures were placed around the village of Middleton-by-Youlgreave as part of a Millennium project... Local sculpters were commissioned to create the markerstones for the seventeen sites, and the verses were written by school children from Middleton and Youlgreave.
Do you have photos of any of the other sites? Do you know of any other similar markers around the area, or similar projects elsewhere in the country?
