Man Bags Himself to Promote Reusables

The San Angelo Standard Times 09.08.07

In San Angelo, Egan Sanders is lobbying for increased use of reusable shopping bags instead of the plastic shopping bags that carry so much of the city's groceries to pantries and refrigerators.

He will be spreading his message by enclosing himself for 24 hours in what has been called "the world's largest reusable shopping bag."

BigBag1 is the name for the large canvas bag. It is 8 feet high, 6 feet wide and 5 feet long and was made by the West Texas Lighthouse for the Blind in San Angelo. It will serve as the screen for the movies that will be projected onto it as part of the Plastic Bag Film Festival.

Our Take: Kinda cool / kinda weird. Bottom line: offbeat efforts like this are raising awareness for the issue. If you know of any, be sure to tell us!
