Charge of the plastic brigade

August 2nd, 2009 at 12:21 am

The supermarket down the road has a notice up. From Monday they are going to charge 5 cents a bag for plastic shopping bags. For the sake of the environment, of course - nothing to do with the bottom line.

Not that it makes any difference to me, I bring my own bag anyway. But I do wonder what the charity shops that ask people to give them their leftover bags will do.

    I like that idea. I don't bring my own bags- but that would get me to do it pronto.

    I figure that's what it will come to sooner or later. There is one grocery store I go to that gives 5 cent credit off your order for each reusable bag used. I like it!

    Most of the supermarkets here will give you .05 off for each bag you bring in.

    C'mon, now, all the heads of those big corporations have kids and just want to preserve the earth for them. You are too cynical. Smile
