You are honestly going to audibly sigh, roll your eyes and mumble complaints just because I choose to use reusable shopping bags?
Is it really that big of an inconvenience?
I was once a Wal-Martian too you know. I stood where you are standing. And I can’t believe that placing a customer’s purchased items is a reusable bag would really be that much more of a hassle than putting them in four times as many plastic ones.
Plastic bags that, by the way, take 450 years to biodegrade. Plastic bags than can end up in our oceans and be eaten by sea life thereby not only threatening their lives, but ours as we harvest them for seafood.
Sure they’re recyclable. But how many people actually recycle them? Not to mention that the recycling process for plastic bags emits heavy metals into the air causing tremendous air pollution which threatens, wait for it, our lives!
Did I mention that they’re made pretty shoddily too? I mean, by the time you make it to your car inevitably at least one of them has some sort of hole or tear in it; your newly purchased items teetering on the brink of falling through and landing in the middle of the parking lot. Not only do the reusable ones solve this dilemma, but they’re easier to carry and they hold more, reducing the number of trips it takes to carry them all in when you get home.
It can’t be anything but a win-win situation. Can it?
So your obvious disdain for reusable shopping bags is telling me what exactly? Is it telling me that you hate the earth? Is it saying that you actually want to contaminate and pollute our environment to the point that we all die slow, horrible deaths? Or is telling me that the 20 extra seconds that it might take for you to use them could disrupt your day so significantly that taking that chance is worth it?
Thank you Cashier.
I will take that into consideration.
But I will continue to be an inconvenience to you by carrying my own bags.
And I won’t apologize for it.
