China's farmer lawmaker gives another green idea....

So a Chinese lawmaker came up with another eco-friendly idea for his fellow countryman to adopt (he helped in the ban of plastic bags in China) and the new proposal is that their ID card hold their important informations on one side instead of two.

You might be wondering how this is going to be good for the environment. Well, in his argument, there are plenty of occasions that an Identity Card needs to be photocopied front and back as that's where the information is stored. If you have all the information stored on one side of it then you'll only have to photocopy it once, so you'll only use the photocopy machine once. He also proposed charging customers when they use disposable appliances in hotels. Well it's another small step towards the ultimate green goal but maybe we can scan and email it instead of photocopying whenever possible. Well he's so pro on the environment that he gives out bamboo bags and handkerchiefs at the annual sessions. Sweet. Singapore should start charging on their plastic bags at the supermarkets.

Tip of the day: Hang your clothes out to dry instead of using a dryer. I mean, come on lah, we are living in a tropical island right so make use of it. Plus your clothes will have a fresher smell to it!
