Has anyone been to target lately??
They've introduced the new bio-degradable bags but....
they charge 10cents PER BAG!!!!
i am all for saving the environment and trying to create less pollution etc but why should we the consumers have to pay for a bag, when we're already buying the item (s) from that store.
I think each store should wear the cost, i cant imagine it costing THAT much extra per bag so buy in these new super dooper bio-degradable bags from their distributors.
As of Jan 1 2009, all supermarkets etc have only x4 months to stop using plastic bags and face heavy fines if caught dispensing bags after this time.
I have a couple of green bags, but i also find the plastic shopping bags great for bin liners and re-using them if i need to take something somewhere etc. So i am still recyling the bags, and not getting home, unpacking the shopping and throwing the bags in the rubbish bin.
I think its REALLY rude to be charging 10 cents per bag....or am i the only "tight" one around here??
Surely, if we really wanted to save our environment we would look at fast food places.... how many of us have seen fast food car parks, shopping centres strewn with their chains burger wrappers etc... cut down on packaging, that will save the landfill content quicker!
