Plastic Bags

Singapore is now on a go GREEN drive, every month, first wednesday, you go shopping at places like NTUC, Sheng Siong, etc, plastic bags would not be given to you automatically. Want a plastic bag, donate 10 cents.

If I donate 10 dollars, can have 100 or is it 1000 plastic bags or not?

Some say good start, others say no.

Now lets see:-

1) don't have a start, people say Sing no save trees.
2) have a start, some say why only 1 day, shoudl be more days
3) some others also say, if 1 day, then this day no go shopping, other days than go. WED is now known as ladies night and save plastic day and also no shopping day

In acutal fact, these measures already very common in many overseas countries (must benchmark mah!) and so actually no big deal lah....

conservation and preservation brings about some alternative usage of things naturally.

The organisers should offer more tangible incentives. It's a fact that majority are not JUST motivated by altruisism towards the environment. In overseas countries, they charge you extra if you want a plastic bag. And/ or they offer you a small refund if you dispose the items back at their store.
