Yes, if you're planning to buy stuff that doesn't fit in your pockets, you also need to bring your wallet. Trying times ahead....

Years ago we only had paper bags, But we had to save the trees so paper bags were replaced with plastic. 

The could grow more Eucalyptus trees(They already do in Isaan),

which would keep farmers busy,and it's a renewable resource.

Reducing plastic bags = more profit for the retailers,a windfall,

yes I know we should be getting rid of plastic bags,they are evil,

but why not give us an alternative with paper bags.

Why not have your own shopping bag like it use to be 40years ago. I have my own bag but the market people will put the items still in a plastic bag if you let them. But I have to except  it if its soup or a liquid item. Haven't  got round to taking a container with me but I will.

Because I dont always remember to carry a bag,I suppose in time

it will become natural .

Indeed, but they needed some 'help' to get there.

I fall into this category mainly because the nearest 7/11 is 3 kms away and the nearest Tesco Lotus 25kms away and there is no public transportation in the rural countryside!!

No local markets?

But it can still be an eyesore if people throw the bag away on the road side. l live in a village while in Thailand and the trash thrown out of cars is unbelievable. Every morning l walk 500 meters on the way picking this trash up.

I always mai sai toom. No plastic! Then they start loading up my bag. Most look at me like I am from Mars. Do I care? Not one iota. About 1% thank me, and get it. Not many do

I think look at you from Mars because they not understand you. 

Toom?  You speak Mars language?

 

You must say “toong” 

“mai sai toong”. 

Better to say “mai sai toong na krap”  polite way. 

 

Ps. Toong = plastic bag  Not plastic.
