No more rubber condoms either. The ecologically friendly prophylactic is now a hollowed out aubergine or cucumber.

 

Soon to be on sale in green supermarkets.

At my age I need a string bean.....🙄

...and I'll bet that 90% of the items inside those bags are prepacked with plastic.

The public here are used to being kept in the dark, so no great surprise there. I would hazard a guess that a very significant amount of plastic bags are used more by the market or talat sellers,

Almost comical reading some of these comments saying that this is good for the environment and going to help nature. 🙄 

Congratulations, you are officially indoctrinated !

 

None of this nonsense is going to help the environment or nature. What would help is if people would stop throwing their waste into the waterways and start recycling more.

 

Banning plastic bags is not the answer and only stands to benefit the shop owners and retailers who no longer have to provide bags for the goods their customers buy. Think they'll lower their prices to pass the savings on to you?? 🤔 Keep dreaming!

 

Promote personal responsibility instead of banning useful items.  🙄

So, there are people who use the plastic shopping bags as trash containers (like me).

Don't tell anyone, but I fill mine with cat sh *$&*$& it and coffee grounds.  Sometimes I mix into it, food scraps and the skins I peel off vegetables.  I have even been known to use them for trash.

 

I can't get enough of them!  I've got a cat that gets fed all day long, so the little  unmarried thing that we normally call a <deleted> but I'll say non-married fathered child, (replaced the word "<deleted>") craps all day and night as well.

I carry two reusables in my man-bag and one in the car. The public I fear, will comply as much as they do with the helmet law. As for businesses, profit before all else.

Looks a lot like'guns dont kill,people do'

Plastic bags dont pollute people do!

Guess what ,take away the bags and less pollution.

What other members also said,teach people to not throw other garbage

away may help also.

I just drove to the parking lot of a local theme park there was a bus load full

of small school children.The windows were open and all kinds of garbage was thrown out.

Where are the teachers telling them not too?Or why did the parents not teach them?

Oh yeah i forgot,mai pen rai.

Equating plastic bags to guns.  I've got to give you credit Mister, that was ballsy.

How will these thousand and thousand working people going to manage carrying their lunch at work? Tom yam in paper bags?

Better, go to Tops on Tuesdays.  Watch the pandamonium at checkout.  Oh, bring some music on your phone as you'll be standing in line for at least 3 x what it would normally be as the checkers try to figure out how to get people out the door with food in boxes. 

 

The Thais take it, what a surprise.  I complain loudly to the point where they bring plastic bags to my checker just to make me shut up.

 

Then the Thais thank me.

 

Yada yada
