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.

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

Well it seems that more than half the population of the world are without a brain then!

If you drive you put on a seat belt, if you ride a motorcycle you put on a helmet, if you go shopping you take some bags... you're catching on fast!

No, no and no....got it.

Just carry reusable bags in your car or under motorbike seat just as most people now do in the UK. If they start charging 10thb per plastic bag, again as they have in the UK, habits will soon change.

Do you really think charging 10bht for bag will turn me into a Nancy, no way Jose.

Fantastic idea  this will SAVE the world !! In QLD.Australia the government banned stores giving out the free light weight plastic bags to customers. However they now sell heavy duty plastic bags for 15 cents each instead.These bags take 50 years to break down.Thats really clever.It is estimated that the big supermarkets are making $80 million dollars A YEAR  out of this...I wonder who lobbied the gov. to bring this law in ??

Far more plastic goes into the packaging of the products we used to put in those bags than the bags themselves. This is little more than virtue signalling 

but apparently you don’t want to start anywhere at all ?

That way good for plastics we need. And other rubbish.

Can not stop using plastic 100% yet. (Hope soon)

But better to reduce plastic use. Use papaer bag, paper straw, etc etc.

 

have paper and just give to worm better than have plastic bag, straw etc and burn it.

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 ?

Are you deliberately being obtuse, or just illiterate? This article is about member of the Thai Retailers Association stopping the provision of plastic bag. Do you think your local street vendors are part of this association?

 Apart from that it has already been announced that wet foods ( ie your fresh chicken and fish) will not be affected by the proposed government ban either.

 As I have said earlier in this thread, apparently the average person in Thailand uses 4 checkout type plastic bags per day (& another 4 from markets/street vendors). Nobody should need 4 garbage bags per day per person.

pollution, lol...what about all the black smoke coming from diesel  ?

 

what about plastic bottles?

 

I use a reverse osmosis filter and use glass bottles

 

now that would save much more money & pollution if everyone would do it

So better tell all the" Uncles in Bangkok" to spend Thai treasure money on those instead of their new army toy's Christmas list
