So far it seems that everything comes in a plastic bag. Now, I didn’t support the ban on plastic bags in Seattle. Plastic grocery bags are really useful for lots of things. But this is a little ridiculous. For example, I ordered Khanom Krok and some other things for breakfast this morning. The Khanom Krok goes in a little tray. Which goes in a little plastic bag and that goes in a bigger plastic bag. Then the other things already come in a plastic bag but those go in another plastic bag which goes into the bigger plastic bag.
I did feel proud of myself for refusing a plastic bag at the grocery store today. I just put the stuff directly into my backpack.
But maybe there is a reason for all the plastic bags. All the scooters have a little hook below the steering column. It’s really handy to hang all your goodies that came in plastic bags from that hook to drive them home. Hmm…. Maybe I will start keeping a tally of how many plastic bags I use every day.
