Reusable Idea: the "No Bag Carry Contest"

An organization called Heal the Bay, a California based group dedicated to protecting Santa Monica Bay promoted "A Day Without A Bag" on December 20th. Their purpose is to draw attention to the destructive effects of these bags on the environment, particularly wildlife. The solution is ,of course, reusable bags.

I love the idea, and want to suggest an additional element. I think a "No Bag Carry Contest" would be a fun way to promote the idea of no bags. In the contest, people compete to see how many items they can carry from a store without a bag. Who says environmentalists can't carry on?
