  1. Oh my god, it is so simple to use your own bag, it really annoys me that people find it so hard. And when yo go through the express check out and buy a few things and they give you several plastic bags (if you don’t have a reusable) WHYYY

    1. It’s going to take a while for people to get used to bring their own bags, but we should try to stop using plastic shopping bags. It is not just government’s actions to ban the plastic bags, but more like how we want to do it. 🙂 Thanks for commenting!
