    What do you think about 'No Plastic Day' in Hyper Marts?

    The theme is supposed to be going towards a greener Earth, and so they do not provide plastic bags for your groceries.  However, for a token sum of 20 cents per piece, they are glad to sell you the plastic bags for your groceries.  Makes sense???  Not to me.

    That sounds like a money making gimmick to me. Unless, they are going to donate the proceeds to some Green research.

    It sounds similar to a campaign by NTUC FairPrice in Singapore a few months back.  Every Wednesday, they will not give out plastic bags for your purchases.  If you require bags, you are requested to donate some money into a can or to buy a reusable bag.

    I think the only good thing about such campaigns is to raise awareness of the impact that we have on our environment.  I doubt that the decrease in the use of plastic bags as the result of such campaigns significantly benefits the environment.
