Recommended Posts

What will happen to the companies who make the plastic bags?

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

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!

Ha ha, something else for those with too much time on their hands to whine about. Will this run as long and as hard as the TM30 saga....

I think it’s a good move.

Get some of those if you are a 3BB user 

folded only 19 x14 cm unfolded 40x36x13 cm and no strange looks as using in different supermarkets as company competition neutral ...😉

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.

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.
