Earth Keeper not Tree Hugger

(Translation since the image came out crummy: Once discarded in landfill sites, the exposure to sunlight, oxygen and heat will convert the plastic in this bag into water, carbon dioxide (read: plant food), mineral salt and biomass. Like a fallen leaf it will disappear over time and leave no harmful residue in the soil.)

I bought a DVD for the kids the other day and had the bag sitting on my desk. I was glad to see this written at the bottom. I'm always glad for progress in producing consumables that aren't destroying the planet for our children's children's children and reflects a mindfulness of the earth as a trust over which we are placed as managers by our honoured position as imagers of God and his good rule over a good creation.
