Panel 1 : Int. Home – Day

Kevin holds a reusable tote bag filled with groceries. A logo printed on the bag reads “NPR.” A green ring-necked parrot sits on a perch behind him.

Bird
Wait, Kevin- haven’t you heard? Tote bags are bad for the environment.

What? How?

Reusable cotton totes take more energy to create than plastic bags.

Each new tote has to be reused 20,000 times to break even.

Kevin
But… how will people know I support NPR?

The parrot leans in.

Kevin, you’re a white, middle-aged liberal… we know.

Kevin deadpans to camera.
