Plastic shopping and food bags including restaurant take out bags have been officially banned here.
I understand the reasons why. Don't miss seeing them lodged into trees,flying all over the streets.
We went out to dinner the other night.Bought a few things to take home.The restaurant was using plastic bags.They aren't supposed to.
After that stopped by the drug store picked up a few things.We were charged .10 for paper bags that were so small we had to buy a few of them.The checker made the comment "Why don't you just use the reusable ones?" Well for starters they weren't selling any of them.
Went grocery shopping the store charged us .25 for every paper bag needed.Reusable ones were a $1.25.
I don't like the reusable ones.If something leaks into the bag it's a p.i.a to clean up.No to mention if it's not caught lots of germs can grow in them.
Why was it before plastic was used the consumers weren't charged for paper,but now we are? Like the rising cost of food hasn't been enough.
One of my sons refused to cave in.When the checker asked what he wanted.He replied politely "nothing,just ring up the groceries" When she was done he slid everything right back into the cart.
She was shocked.
I'm going to check out Amazon.Buy my own by the case.
