And many years ago the reason we stopped using paper bags was to save all of the trees that were being cut down to make them!  If we hadn't switched to paper back then today's environmental situation would be far worse than it is now!

 

Now they recycle paper.

Not everbody lives in an area where delivery is avaiable and the daily outdoor markets certainly won't deliver.

Then send your wife or maid to do the groceries 🤣

Last week at Tops/Central Plaza Kohn Kaen on No Bag Day each register had an ample supply of cardboard cartons for customers to load their groceries in. My guess is that these cartons would be normally be recycled in bulk by Tops but as one-offs to the customer they would just get tossed, Nice try to be helpful but going in the wrong direction.

It has to start somewhere and shopping habits have to change.

 

It is-as Pavlov-once pointed out about changing patterns of behaviour which you can do.

 

Even my Thai wife (Pavlov would have despaired about Thai wives.😅) has her little collection of enviro-bags.

If you don't receive a free plastic bag, don't shop any more at this place. 

 

Sure they will be devastated. 

 

They are distressed at Immigration as well, due to all the people who left Thailand because of the rules changing.

She'll wipe that grin right off her face when she needs to carry three or four of those paper bags some 300 or 400 meters to a taxi.

Can just use this one. Every supermarket in Thailand have. 

Is very clever....same Yinn do.

Maybe because I live deep in the countryside? Perhaps you think I should get a horse, but then you'd say their farts pollute the environment.

Yes, I want you to change the conditions under which you live. In fact, I demand it.  Just as you and others are demanding that I change mine. Currently, I walk the 6 km round trip to my local Foodland. This is made possible because I can carry three or four plastic bags all at the same time. I don't drive a car or truck, so my three or four bags contribute far less to the carbon footprint than your paper bags which you transport via internal combustion engine. It's the same way for a lot of Thais around my area. They can tie up three or four plastic bags on a bicycle and never pollute with an engine or contribute to traffic snarls and large parking lots, which themselves are environmentally destructive. Sorry you live in the countryside. I'll stop telling you how to live your life when you stop telling me how to live mine.

Wait when your paper bag breaks and all your shopping is all over the road, then come back and tell me how well you survive

Buy your own shopping bag the same as everyone else.😬

That would be nice. But it's a moving ramp, not an escalator with steps. Not only that but the escalator at Central Pinklao requires you to walk up a short flight of stairs to get to the escalator. Look, I really wish it were possible to directly move everything to the taxi from the store. But they system, in many places, is simply not constructed for that.
