I expect long lines at the cashiers because some people will need a lot of time to pack their things themselves. 

You don't have to look far, just visit Tops in Central Lad Prao on any no bag day and you will see a disaster.  It takes 3 times the normal process to deal with no bags.  

 

It's a very bad idea all around.

It seems that most of the expat guys here in Chiang Mai walk around in some variant of cargo shorts with a gazillion pockets.  So how difficult is it to have one of those folded up nylon bags in one of those pockets?  That's what Hubby does.  

 

But, it's gotten to the point that we buy small plastic bags for disposal of the cats' tuna truffles since our supply of grocery store plastic bags is now almost non-existent.  Kind of defeats the purpose, doesn't it?

I don't own a single pair of cargo pants.  I have an issue with the excessive amount of cloth used to make one of these anti-societal and wasteful pants.  

 

When you buy your small bags for the cat's truffles, do you put them in a bag at checkout, or do you open them and stuff them into one of the truffle bags? 

 

Perhaps you stuff them into the cargo shorts!  Don't you know, that some poor woman in China slaved to knit those shorts for you and she was probably paid very little and lucky if she can afford cat food to eat.

Good grief, Thailand is swimming in plastic

I don't buy that statement.  Give me a proper example of Thailand swimming in plastic.

I need the plastic bags as bin liners and to wrap meat in the freezer

Do you keep them like this?  My stash is getting quite low. Freezer burn is a horrible thing to do your meat.

Like you are a fellow Yank and all that, but our position on this earth, ie representing the greatest, freest, richest and most powerful nation that ever existed, the beacon of hope in an otherwise crappy world, give us Americans the heavy responsibility of not acting like dicks in foreign countries where we are permitted to come and go as we please as guests.

What a load of -- !!!

Agreed!  I like to put my <deleted> in plastic bags.  I especially like to fill plastic bags with cat dookies.  No one has yet to suggest a better idea.

I think you'll find the answer in the first paragraph, to be honest I think you are just being purposely obnoxious.

I second that. 👍

FoodLand and all other stupidmarkets should be sued for any injuries due to not being able to control one's own groceries!

Who said it´s their object to control your groceries? Shame on you! 
 

Grow up and take respoinsibility! We must all help to build up our enviroment. That means you have to do your part too.

I don't see any reason why packing the groceries into baskets, boxes or reusable bags should take any longer. With practice, this can be done quickly. I packed my own resuable bag today at Big C. No extra time needed.

Biodegradable bags, available at a supermarket near you, the rest of what I think cannot be posted..............

at Villa Market I tell the super beautiful check out checker person to put everything back in the cart.

 

Yep. Easy solution. We actually have a shopping bag but I always forget to bring it from the car. They just put everything back in the cart and good to go.

 

I am willing to guess that a hell of a lot of people use Big C or Tesco bags as bin liners at home.

 

If they stop providing bags then likely people will be obliged to buy black bin liners so in reality the bag ban is unlikely to be as green as planned.

I own one of the few Left Hand Drive Cadillac Seville's and without specifically dating my boat, it is from the 80's.  It sports an 8 Cylinder Detroit Engine with a cubic inch displacement that would make John Holmes jealous. 

 

It has been known to attract attention where we go.  And for a boat from the 80's, it gets fantastic mileage too!

 

What I do not understand, is how so many of the social justice warriors we have posting here on TV.  Everyone seems to forget that I get a dual use from my bags.  I love my plastic bags!  I collect them!  Double bag is my motto.  

 

I am a double-bagger!  

 

I am curious, how would you have me dispose of my cat crapola?

Shoot the cat?

Yes, let's do something.  Anything.  Just do it.  

 

I do something, I collect as many bags as I can.

So  you stash the  bags  but   can't  be  bothered  to  shove a  couple in   your   back pocket  to  use  next  time? Convenience  rules?  <deleted> !

Why  should  he?  The  cat   eats  the food  but  not  the  plastic  insisted  it  is accommodated  in  does  it?

The  beginning  of   "convenience" is  "con".
