To all the oil companies out there with a world to impress
It’s easy to do, just follow these steps:

  1. Spill some oil in the Gulf
  2. Put that oil in a box
  3. Pump that oil to a ship

And that’s the way you do it….

Nothing profound, just a good link to have handy, especially at spring cleaning time.

I think I’m going to start posting more frequent links and shorter entries (you know, like a blog).

got bag?

'got bag?' door sign

I’m a dork. I save plastic grocery bags because there’s no reason to get a new one every time I go to the store—it’s wasteful. However, every time I go to the store, I forget to grab one from my drawer of many bags. When I come home, I add the new bag or three to the already full drawer. How can I stop this repetitive pattern of destructive behavior?

The solution is simple. I designed a visually stark but effective [and clever] sign to tape to the back of my door. Now, when I leave for the store, I’ll be reminded not only that I need to go back and get a plastic bag, but also that I’m a dork.

You, too, can share this experience [except without the mild sense of accomplishment of having come up with the idea yourself]. Simply download the PDF version of the plastic grocery bag sign or the larger low-tech GIF version of the “got bag?” sign.
