So they seriously think that when I go in there and take out 6 bottles of beer from the refrigerator, bring it up to the counter in a red basket and pay for it, that I am going to be able to carry it

I can't remember the last time I needed a plastic bag from 7/11. I always carry a 15l dry bag when I am on my bike. A few years ago I would usually get a funny look when I turned down a plastic bag, n

Hey if family mart has bags its goodbye 7-11.....

When I first gave up taking plastic bags here I was looked at like I was from another planet. These days I’m often asked if I want one and when I say no the staff invariably say thank you. That IS progress. Hopefully all the major companies will follow suit. Is it really such a hardship to carry a cloth bag in your back pocket? I understand that most here realize they’ll be long gone before a real turnaround happens with our climate but it’s just plain selfish not to consider future generations.

Thanks, we are on the same wavelength and it seems that we have had the same experiences with the "no bag", I have always two cloth bags with me. I am also against the plastic bags for meat and vegetables, I am starting to use plastic containers, it is a great battle that I will win in the end!

Why not just think “better late than never” and applaud 7-11 for taking a firm stance, they might just be leading the way

I will applaud them, and other shops, as soon as they stop talking about it and actually implement all of these rules and bans.

This was standard on beer and 'pop' bottles in the UK when I was a kid. Then came plastic and the chuck away society was born.

 

Germany is a great example and it's no surprise to me. I've never visited another country that has as much pride in their environment as the Germans.

Actually, you've formulated exactly what I've noticed over the years here but couldn't put into words - being proud of your countryside and environment.

And another free publicity for CP, which of the 12,000 7/11 stores only 137 participate in this campaign!
Hypocrites!

Someone else that has trouble reading.  137 pilot stores and the rest of the 12,000 from January, just a few weeks away.

 

It's been working in the 7/11's on Koh Samet for some time.  People will soon get used to the change as they have in many other countries.
