Well..I will make my peace now.

 

I congratulate the Thai gov't and the Thai private interests for trying to rein in this curse-for a curse it truly is.

 

I am flummoxed by "farangs" whining that it may inconvenience them...selfish and beyond selfish.

 

Habits must change...and pray forgive the lack of humour that I have displayed on the subject because the planet is running out of time..unless we want all our wildlife to choke to death on plastic bags.

 

And then,of course,we will also choke as they burn the residue.

Plastic is good Animals need plastic for a balanced diet....And plastic bags stops global warming too....You can carry your groceries home with plastic bags,have a place to put your kitty litter and save the world at the same time....

villa market has old style brown paper bags just like the 1970's for the last few months. they have a big sign that says "Due to global warming we no longer have plastic bags." not joking.  

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.

Same here,have done for years,a few years ago the 7 eleven staff always had a smile (good to see) when I placed my empty bag on the counter when checking out,not now though,the paper bags are a good idea,but no good for cold things like beer.

Free plastic bags will soon be history in Thailand. 

It is already the case in many countries. 

However for the plastic bag lovers there will be always the possibility to buy them. 

Even trendy ones.

Half of my groceries would fall out through the holes. Unless . . . they lined that mesh bag with something. You know, something sort of like a plastic bag.

I have had those paper bags at  Villa Problem is you can only carry 2 or 3 of them They should use the shopping bag style brown paper bags You can carry more that way Wonder if this is going to affect sales in the short term ?

I use plastic bags as kitchen bin liners. So no more plastic bags at the check out..... so I just buy a roll of bin liners and use them !!!    I wonder if the street market vendors will also stop providing plastic bags for the prawns. wet fish , fresh chicken parts ,  offal , cuts of pork and BBQ meats on a stick ?

This is the only true, and people who support scammer shops are just idiots.

I won't go shopping anywhere without plastic bags and anybody with a brain should do the same.

Ah yes. You are correct but the only difference is the trash bags that are available are bio-degradable whereas the 7/11, supermarket and others are not.
