My stupid country is banning plastic bags for supermarket stores. We now have to pay 15 cents for every "reusable" bag. Gone are the days when you could just walk in and expect your shit to be able to be carried.

Has your country done the same? And has your country installed a ban more stupid than this for anything else?
>>
>>92018161
even plastic straws are getting banned here. Jut bring your own bags. I use the hard plastic bags from ikea.
>>
>>92018161
banning disposable plastic bags is a good step, plastic is an environmental disaster
>>
>>92018161
What are you a bored middle aged housewife? Get a life mate.
>>
>>92018214

You are the reason this country is KEKED.
>>
>>92018161
why are cunts so angry about this? is it because the 15/30/45 cents you have to pay? i dont get it honestly, seems like a complete non issue to me
>>

>>
>>92018254
You are complaining online about a tiny inconvenience like it is the end of the world. Drink some concrete.
>>
At least you can pay for a reusable. In my home town they simply banned bags and won't sell any kind. So if I pass by the super after work, I have to carry them by hand or in a fucking crate.
>>
>>92018403
they don't even sell paper or canvas bags? that's fucked
>>
>>92018367

Tiny inconvenience?

Mate, get yer hand off it, it's a big inconvenience to me when my country is full of cuks that allow themselves to be fucked in the ass until we have no freedom left.

You are like a housewife that gets beaten up by her husband and asks for more
>>
>>92018513
explain urself u fuckin moron no one understands why ur so upset, do u get it? we wanna know why, lets talk about this bro
>>
In Australia, if you want to pay for something that is higher than $10,000, you cannot pay in cash, you can only pay using a bank.

FREEDOM
>>
>>92018635
This is to avoid dirty money, you scum
>>
I think we still have plastic bags but I have been reusing those big ones for years anyway so I wouldn't really miss it if they banned the 2c ones.
>>
>>92018635
makes me think of those stories of retards keepin like $100k in cash in a box under their bed then their house sets on fire lmfao
>>
>>92018513
> country tries to reduce its exacerbated CO2 emissions by adopting logical measures
> such as curtailing senseless consumption of plastic
> REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE THIS COUNTRY IS TURNING INTO A LITERAL GULAG
I hope you get skin cancer and your house is destroyed by floods.
>>
>>92018161

Welcome to the civlilised world Bruce.

Hell even China banned plastic bags
>>
>>92018161
Been using a cloth bag for the last 7-8 years. Plastic bags just breaks anyway.
>>
>>92018924

China bans everything

They even banned orgasms
>>
>>92018161
I've only heard of Western countries, including my own, doing this. Funny thing is that the majority of plastic pollution comes from Asia and Africa....
>>
>>92019019
They're doing their part.
https://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2018/jul/03/himalayan-state-sikkim-india-war-plastic-bags
>>
>>92018944

Then how comes there’s so many of them?

And why do they do shit like drink tiger piss to enhance their organsms?
>>
>>92019019

Plastic pollution caused by western countries sending their plastic shit over there to get recycled, dumbass.

Go back to your job inspecting Muslim refugee pubic hairs now.
>>
plastic is bad though
>>
>>92018161
Plastic bags were a mistake

In 2 generations no one will miss them
>>
They've cost 20 cents in most stores here for a decade. Last year even the clothing stores joined in.

Some guy did the research and 0% of Finnish plastic ends up elsewhere.
>>
>>92018161
Yes.
Well plastic bags are exclusively for clientele of the short bus that can't plan ahead for 10 minuets so I fail to see your point.
>>
>>92019387
Free* plastic bags are banned. Now they just ask 10 cents or whatsoever.
Paper bags would be the best solution desu
>>
Just get yourself a cloth one. Will serve for a long time.
>>
>>92018161
cunt why are you so pathetic? 15 cents is nothing for a bag, it costs $1.50 for 10 of the bags, plus the bags are like triple the size of the old ones, stronger and better for the environment, if you are too poor to pay $1.50 for 10 bags then you dont deserve groceries
>>
>>92019551
>Will serve for a long time.

And smell like shit too.

Oh wait, hang on, I can't go shopping yet, my bag is still drying from the wash. kek
>>
The council still put bags in the dog poo bag dispenser so thats good but if they stop im fucked
>>
>>92019645
you dont have to wash them retard
>>
>>92018161
go back to facebook you bored overweight 40 year old labourer, noone's "freedoms" are being infringed on because we want to make the earth a little cleaner.
>>
>>92019645
>And smell like shit too.
Do your clothes smell like shit? Of all the complaints this must be the stupidest I've heard, you must be either a banana bender or a nswelshman.
>>
>>92019645
>washing the bag
Since when? What the hell do you plan to put in it then lol.
>>
they banned it 2 years ago here i think
even straws, cups etc
>>
Hello, sir, would you like a plastic bag that is only 80% recyclable, for 15 cents?

Okay sir,

No worries mate, you're welcucked.
>>
>>92019749

>>
>>92019749
Paper is both biodegradable and made from a renewable resource.
>>
Yes. It's fine, don't be such a cunt.
>>
>>92019767
>we farm trees
>I wasn't hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid
>>
>>92019792

How do you pack your fruits or veggies? What is the alternative for plastic bags in this case? Packing fruits into paper bags seems weird to me for some reason
