More than 100 million plastic bags have not bee used at Thailand’s 7-eleven stores in the past month, valued at more than 20 million baht.

 

CP All Public Company, the sole operator of 7-Eleven convenience stores in Thailand, announced its intention to reduce and, eventually, to eliminate the use of single-use plastic bags at all their stores throughout the country.

 

Siamrath news is reporting that 102,323,402 plastic bags have been rejected or unused between December 7 to January 13. The savings, some 20,464,681 baht, will now be donated to Siriraj Hospital.

Keep tipping, nice touch, never mind 'er indoors, it's really appreciated and why not if you can afford it....

Yeah, tipping is not "Thainess", I guess.
My sainted grandmother, who was responsible for much of my "civilized" training, instructed me in the "art". She also stressed the importance of sharing with those less advantaged than one's self.
I am a "baht millionaire", though qualify for some low income programs when living in the US. Go figure. Why many of us live here, I reckon.

My recent experience is they're still instinctively grabbing for a bag, but they do thank me when I tell them I don't want one.

They could do a lot better if you count the bananas they package in plastic bags and then put instinctively after sale into plastic carry bags (unless you say `no'). There's two unnecessary bags for a single transaction.

Now let's guess where the 20 + million baht saved goes to ? ?
