Thread: Hey! Where's yr plastic bag?

  1. #1

    Default Hey! Where's yr plastic bag?

    Went to supermart...
    the cashier stared me in the face :"Where's yr plastic bag?"
    " "
    "then u have to pay 10cents"
    "for what?"
    "donation.."
    "to whom?"
    "... ... "
    "Here's $10..... "
    " .... sorry no change.... never mind..."


    How many think this practise is effective or uneffective ? Pros & Cons?
    Boss say:"Now i shall downgrade u all2 $90 flat for OT!"
    I say:"better ask blanga do..." :bsmilie:

    i support environmental practices..

    so i will say its a good start. i will strongly recommend a enforcing of a 7 day week for that campaign.

    pay for your plastic bags...

    i buy things dun use plastics bags... everything just dump inside my bag.

    sometimes i got bring paperbags.. they do come in handy. but its those branded ones.. pple think i everyday shopping at gucci..

    i think this is a good practise.Some countries are doing it already.In korea,no plastic bags are given.If you want a plastic bag,you'll have to pay extra.This is the same even in the gift shops,and the supermarts i went there.Uppz for the enviroment

    Well, yesterday was at Giant when I saw some great deals for pre-packaged fish so simply grabbed those. Den I remembered, "Oh BYOB." there's the donation tin there and I vaguely recall that proceeds go to some Charity organisation.

    Singapore being small country should do this long ago, 24/7 even better.

    Big countries in europe are doing well and peoples are supportive of it too. Even plastic bottles, after drinking they will bring back the bottles to supermarket for recycling with cash back too.
    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.

    Ahahaha.... 2 cents for bottle recycled.

    Unfortunately, companies here do not adopt such a stand where profit maximisation comes in as a primary goal. By doing so, setting up collection machines and giving maybe, say, 5 cents in exchange for every tin can or glass bottle recycled, would severely cut profit margins.

    i still remember last time got the can drink recycling machine.
    then we just happily keep all the can drink and then bring down to the machine to crush.
    the machine is something like jackpot machine just that you put in drink cans instead of money.
    every can drink you put in, the thing will spin and if they match then you'll get some disount coupons.

    usually, when i buy a few stuff, i dun ask for plastic bag unless necessary.
    You are who you are. Shoot what you enjoy.

    Save the earth, drink from 300ml Tetra Packs instead of buying 2L plastic bottled drinks.
