Do you want your bags?

By johnboy 2 June 2009 64

This sign has gone up on Cowper Street in Ainslie.

If it is indeed a protest against plans to ban disposable plastic bags here in Canberra how do you feel about the issue?

The moves they are afoot.

What’s Your opinion?

^^ and it should be compulsory to wear safety glasses at all times in case we get dust in our eyes.

How can you use all your plastic bags as garbage bags?
What you have to put in it is a fraction of what you buy (you eat half what you buy, then you recycle half the packages…).

I do full backpack shopping and I just put in it everything as it comes (except the most fragile items which are alwys on top so it never needs to be repacked…).

Avoid plastic bags is just being responsible. Of course it is boring. it is boring to recycle, it is boring to take the bus. And yes I agree, we should get rid of the cars too.

Can’t remember the comedian who said that they kept forgetting to take their green reusable bags to the shop so had to buy a few each time he went.

He ended up putting them into his cupboard until one day he ran out of room so packed them into his car and dumped them all down at the local creek.

“What do you put in one plastic bag? A yogurt and that’s all?”

Huh ?
