Recommended Posts

Apart from customers having tiffin tins or Tupperware pots, what do you suggest  street sellers and market stalls pack their food in?

In Tesco it's like playing pass the parcel, on the conveyer scan it hands it back to you you then put it in your bag/ Trolly.

The have had to put security tabs on the baskets Thais have been taking them home we knew this would happen LOL

From recent observation (in BKK) I'd say the supermarkets are deserted compared to Before the Ban. In particular, drop in people shopping for fresh veg and fruit - bulky, needs bags.

And online grocery is simultaneously booming (I just got an order where the first available delivery slot was two days hence) - I'd say that's a result of the Ban. Yes it all arrives without a clutch of bags, but you only have to carry from your door, not all the way home.

If I'm right, and if the Ban stays, it could be the end of selecting your own onions or potatoes.

We still generate far too much plastic waste, but at least we are trying.

My wife came home from Tesco yesterday with shopping in a large heavy duty laundry type basket, they gave it to her in Tesco as she had forgotten her bag! 

No sure they have bought into this yet?

One thing they will have to do is to modify the checkout counters for self-bagging.

 

In Italy and Belgium (both bag-free and we've lived there) the outgoing side is sloped with a movable divider. Checkout operator places the goods on the slope and it slides towards the customer who is packing it. Once customer is done the divider is moved across and the next customer served before customer one has finished packing.
