Don't forget, the customer pays for everything - bags, chill charges, etc. ..

True, but other business expenses are built into the "sticker price" and not added on top -  nor forced on the business by the whims of one municipality.

Exactly........The business expense should ALWAYS be built into the sticker price. Never added on at the till as an additional charge. It's simply BAD BUSINESS to do it that way.

I just made an impromptu shopping trip to London Drugs. For an additional 5 cents I was able to carry home my purchases in the rain in a "single use" plastic bag. In a few months time, under the same circumstances LD will lose out on a $46 sale.

I sense sarcasm when you say "Single Use Plastic Bag?"

As I think I mentioned, I bought a robe there last week that was not a planned purchase. And it was raining.

If you bought a shower curtain with the robe, you wouldn't have to worry about the rain.

Better yet, each business will create a co-op where every regular customer buys in to share a batch of bags and therefore when you go shopping you are being provided with something that you own.....therefore no transaction at the till. The store charges an annual storage fee of approx $0.02 per bag. So every year you go in and 'renew' your membership for $20 and you are entitled to 100 bags.

I think we should get a batch of single use bags with such sayings.

It’s from under my sink I’ll use it again .

I knew I saved it for a reason.

I recycle all used plastic bags .

Hands of my bag Lisa .

Presumably, London Drugs will still supply their "wet umbrella bags" at the entrance to the store.

If they are there after July 1st, you know where I'll be getting my "single use bags" when shopping. Sure they're an awkward size, but if you use enough of them you could carry quite a bit.

Our shower is glassed in so we don't need a plastic curtain, lol.

 

I think I took one of those umbrella bags once to use for my umbrella when I take it to work.

Not that I want them on Lisa & Co.'s hit list but the umbrella bags are the very definition of "single use", but by all means, ban grocery bags, 'cuz you know, "the environment".
