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. 

I recommend you for bag this style,

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.

Why do you use a private car? You pollute more with your trip to the grocery store than if you used 100 plastic bags. You should bicycle or use public transportation. But you're in hysterics over plastic bags???

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!!

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

Then where it go? The bin eat it? Or not?

 

What this story subject? Is start already.

Huh have you ever heard about recycle ? You can actualy use garbage to produse electricity / district

heating plant to suport a smal village but that means that the people actualy put the garbage in the bin

and not just trow it everywhere because them might have to walk a extra 50 meter to the nerest bin ( no

the bin not eat it silly you lol ). Its probably to late to teach the Thais in there 20 , 30 , 40 , 50 , 60 etc etc but if you to day start teach the children maybe in 20 year from now you will see a Thailand plastic free or not have garbage everywhere you go , its actualy possible but you have to start change the Thai thinking that somebody else will clean up after you and insted actualy clean up after your self its not that hard.

Are you assuming you won’t be offered an alternative? Just in case take your own bags, think less about their profits and more about the good that will come from this.

Thanks for the correction on the TetraPak (if that's what brand are used in Thailand) but the coffee cups cannot be recycled.

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!

BS! stores stopped using paper bags because it was cheaper for the stores to buy plastic bags.  The plastic bag industry aggressively marketed the use of "single-use" plastic bags in Europe starting in 1965 and migrated to the US in 1979.

Well, I'm not going to read 9 pages of comments and I doubt few of you will.  But, just to let you know, one of the things that made paper bags so unpopular was the proliferation of the small house roaches.  They love the glue used to seal the bottoms of the paper bags and they would lay their eggs in them.  So, don't keep your paper bags around too long or store them below the kitchen cabinet...  I'll just be buying plastic trash bags and carrying my groceries, etc in them.

And wrong again.... plastic bags were cheaper, easier to manage at the retail shop.... plastic bags are lighter in weight so transportation costs are significantly lower for plastic bags compared to the same quantity of paper bags used for groceries.  In 1985, the cost for 1,000 plastic bags was $24 while the cost for the same number of paper bags for groceries was $30.  You truly believe that the plastic industry or retailers were concerned about the health of the forests? 555  Cost/profit was the driver...    ting tong    555

Got one at Villa Ploenchit a few days ago although they saw I had a cotton bag.
