My rap on bags
“You don’t want a bag do you?” The person at the liquor store sees me with some regularity and knows my style.
[I don’t by booze at the store for myself, in that i only seem able to drink sugary blender drinks which i am unwilling to make for myself, but i do shopping for the entire community as a town tripper and thus i am in there almost every week.]
My usual response is:
“I don’t use bags and want the store management to use the money saved to increase staff salaries.”
This warrants a couple of different responses:
Amusement – “You don’t know my store management.” or
Appreciation – “That would certainly be nice.” or “What a good idea.”
Either way my interaction with the person who was a nameless clerk moments before becomes more positive and more human. And with some effort and storytelling we can make single use disposable plastic bags an extinct species.
I am asking you to join the conversation.
