vancouver grocery store shames customers with embarrassing plastic bags

by:Yucai     2020-01-06
Independent food stores are known to use the least amount of packaging and encourage recycling of their products to promote green living.
But now, a grocery store in Vancouver has gone a step further and designed plastic bags to prevent customers from using single bagsuse plastics.
The East-West Market is an independent store that only sells local food, hoping the move will encourage people to bring their own reusable bags to shop instead of relying on a single bag
Many people are used to plastic.
Every time a customer takes a \"awkward\" plastic bag, it will be charged 5 cents, with information such as \"strange adult video mall\" and \"shaving cream\" printed on it.
The gourmet specialist market, located on Main Street and King Edward\'s Avenue, believes the campaign will affect people\'s shift to greener bags wherever they choose to shop.
David Lee Kumar, owner of East and West, said: \"A lot of people have reusable bags, but forget to bring them.
We want to help customers remember their reusable bags so they can really stick to it.
\"It will definitely get people interested in what we are trying to publish.
I think it will soar from there once you start the conversation. \"He added.
Earlier this week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced plans to ban singles.
Plastic was used in 2021, including all grocery bags, plastic cutlery and straws.
It is created under global pressure, requiring governments to respond to the proliferation of plastic driven by consumerism, which cannot be recycled and eventually disappeared from landfill sites around the world.
There is no complete ban on singles in Vancouver.
Use plastic bags like Victoria and salmon arms.
But Mr Kwen wanted to change the local attitude, although he said that 1000 new bags might only be available for a limited period of time due to additional printing costs.
At the same time, he plans to transfer images from plastic bags to canvas bags.
