Shoppers caught unaware by "No Plastic Bag Campaign". That was in The Star.
Shoppers at Carrefour Shah Alam were caught unaware that Saturday's 2nd January 2010 was the start of No Plastic Day.
When plastic has become a threat to environment due to its lifespan after being discarded into nature's environment, it is a positive move to realise of reducing it. Going Green being the theme all over the world to help delay nature's destruction needs cooperation of everybody. Therefore the No Plastic Day should be supported.
Who benefit from this?
Of course nature and environment.
However the main party that benefit most are the hypermart and business outlets. These outlet saves cost for not supplying anymore plastic bags to be given away to consumers and while doing so increase sales by selling reusable bags while reducing overhead cost. On the other end price of consumer goods keeps escalating while hypermarts keeps making more profit.
So, if plastic bag is damaging why not go back to paper bags like those old days when items are wrapped in surat khabar lama or brown paper packages. Oooooo. using paper will have to cut down more trees. No, lah. Do we have recyclable paper products? I don't think recycle paper result in cutting down new trees.
Mak No Plastic Bags campaign a win win situation.
