I go to the store here in Prince Albert. I get a few things that I take to the cash register. They ring them through and start to put them into plastic bags. I say no thanks for the bags, I'll carry them. They stop and look up at me with a weird quisical look on their face. They ask "What?"
I say no bags please, I'll carry them. This news begins to dawn on them, "You don't want a bag then?"
"No," I drive the point home. And then with a "um ok then," I'm off to make a difference in the world.
Today Brad pointed out that a Canadian kid has discovered a bacteria that eats plastic bags.
How cool is that?
That will probably go over well in places like here where the idea of bringing your own bags to a store, or not using any at all is still such an unbelievable occurrence.
