Time to bring your own shopping bags. Thailand appears serious now.

Recommended Posts

Yesterday was a plastic free day in most shops all over Thailand.  I went to Central and had to carry the towels I bought in my hands!  

 

Also at Friendship they offered me 2% discount if I did not use a plastic bag, I could still get a plastic bag but had to pay for it. 

Not sure if this is only on Fridays or if they will start doing this daily .

Just got back from shopping at Tops and Tesco Lotus this evening. Tops no longer offers plastic bags but does offer paper bags.

In the case of Tops - this is one day a month.  The 4th.  Yesterday was the 4th.

I did my weekly shopping at Tesco Lotus on Friday morning

They did not have the plastic shopping bags

Im lucky i use my backpacks, as i also use my motor bike

I think this might be starting to be a regular thing

Maybe they are getting us prepared for no more plastic bags

only time will tell IMHO
