5 Baht a bag? Someone's havin' a laugh!

Someone failed at maths. It works out to 0.2 Baht a bag (20 satang a bag). Still seems high though.

Ironic they took the photo with a little girl holding a single use plastic cup and straw!

Well spotted.

 

They are a bit thick aren't they?

 

Bless.

With row upon row of plastic water bottles in the background as well.

Better late than never, some of my local 7-11 clerks appreciate my personal efforts using my own bag.

I can only say that most of those bags were not used because customers told staff not to put their groceries into a bag. It most certainly wasn't staff who asked their customers if they wanted a bag or not. 

Bought a banana yesterday, which is already in a bag!, for my son. The cashier girl then put that in yet another plastic bag.... 🤤 One banana, 2 plastic bags... go figure.

There's still a long way to go before they make any real progress, but at least it's a step in the right direction.

Absolutely.

I have tried before to get a response from 7 Eleven about this claim, but they never respond.

As I have also said too - what 7 Eleven say on their website and in their PR blurb is a lie. Staff DO NOT ask customers if they want a bag for single item purchases, as 7 Eleven keep claiming.
