How to Convince People to go Green

Have you ever heard of those psychology experiments where they put a rat in a cage, it presses a lever, and gets a shock? Well, the theory behind it is simple. The rat performs a behaviour, gets punished for this behaviour, then never does it again. Funny enough, the same reasoning can be used to get people to go green. Are you laughing yet? Well, grocery stores have recently placed a cost on plastic bags...a punishment! And ever since then, just about everyone brings their own bags! Its genius. I myself do it for the environment. But for some, money talks.

Eco bags are even cooler when they're hand made and local! To check out my eco bags, see my etsy store!

  1. So true and what a great idea, I was also using canvas bags long before they started charging for them!!
