Today, 18 April 2007, Wednesday is the inaugural Bring Your Own Bag Day (BOYBD). Singapore shoppers are encouraged to bring their own shopping bags.
Subsequently, every 1st Wednesday of the Month will be a designated BOYBD.
Today, actually it was just 10 mins ago, I just came back from buying groceries. This is my usual shopping bag. Its a reusable bag that I have been reusing for years. Actually, it has been reused from another country. Australian visitors might find this familiar :-) This bag is around 3 years old.
Looks like it might be working. For people who bought a few items, when the cashier asked if they wanted bags, they declined it :-) But others insist of having their bags. Well, can't be helped, how are they going to carry their stuff home?
Do you use enviro bags like the ones above?
