Reduction of single-use plastic is worthwhile because of how easily they end up in the environment afterwards, never fully breaking down. Paper products generally don't have that problem. But as someone with a car (that's used mostly for occasional longer-distance trips, and the big shopping trips), while it's easy to keep reusable bags in the car, as a pedestrian/transit user, it's harder to think about keeping spare reusable bags on hand for the spontaneous purchase, especially in the warmer months when it's unlikely you can stash one in your jacket or parka.
So while I see the point, I won't know if this was all thought through for the urban dweller.
Jeez. However did our ancestors survive! Those Wooley Mammoth carcasses didn't carry themselves.
"Alpha". A movie about shopping 20,000 years ago.No, LOL, but they took maybe a dozen men to carry; and worth saying, I doubt they smelled great when they collectively yelled 'Honey(s) We're Home, and we brought 'food'. LOL
Also I don't think Mammoth was all the breakable.
I have gotten mostly in the habit of carrying a reusable bag with me. I'm not at 100% yet and obviously one bag isn't going to carry a load of groceries, but I usually have at least the one in my pocket.
Yeah, we buy plastic bags now for kitchen garbage. Probably makes carrying my own bag mostly meaningless. We should focus on making it possible for people to walk to stores. 15 minute cities, anyone?
Have pubs next to parks and playgrounds, like they have in Europe. As the kids play on the swings, the adults can watch them from the pub patios.
Why? Especially if you don't have to drive far away to get to and from a pub. When you can walk.Walter,
Are you serious? You come up with some absolutely stupid ideas but this takes the cake.
Can you not see how bad this idea is?
