In front of a clear plastic square and using plastic disposable gloves because of Covid.

Can't forget the surgical mask made of blown plastic.

During the pandemic I was informed at a store I patronize with a straight face that I could not bag my groceries because - danger, but then at the second store, I had to do my own bagging from now on because that was safer.

This whole environment crap is our fault,, not one attempt to reign in these companies that purposely make garbage that will need replacing instead of being built to last or fixable & ridiculous amount of packaging.

No such plastic bag ban in Texas, the land of freedom.

Laredo tried to ban plastic bags. Laredo is asshoe.

The plastic bag bag really makes everything feel third world. I'm juggling bags out of the store. People who shoplift don't need to pretend to bag anymore. It's really a clusterfuck

Unless there's an outbreak of Covid. Then it's back to plastic bags.

Banning plastic bags is the biggest scam. All my life we reused them as household garbage bags. Now we have to go out and buy glad garbage bags for 10x the price. There's no reduction in plastic use and a certain company reaps the rewards. Fabric or paper bags suck and don't trap things like juices.

I use them to clean up my cats shit. When I lived in a place that "banned" them, I had to buy plastic bags designed specifically for that, and pretty much useless for anything else.

This was a tax grab. You can still get bags (and they are far thicker now lasting even longer in the environment) when you check out. You just have to pay 10 cents for them. They taxed us for using plastic bags and no one blinked.

And a paper straw wrapped in platic for the drink

Keiichi81 4 points ago +4 / -0

Also you can't have a plastic straw because it's bad for the environment. You'll need to use this paper straw in your plastic drink cup.

CuckS1ayer 2 points ago +2 / -0

Oh and it will fall apart after 3 sips so you will need several of them.

Its weird how a plastic straw in a paper wrapper is bad, but a paper straw in a plastic wrapper is good. These idiots are mentally gay.

If they tell you something is bad for the environment chances are the alternative is worse, people that advocate for depopulation will never do anything to help said population.

AND they'll charge you for a paper bag now too That's why I steal shit

No joke! I go into a store in NYC and they won't give you a bag. They want to try to sell you a reusable bag. I tell them I want a paper bag, and they tell me it's a .10¢ deposit. I ask them why they're charging me for a paper bag and they tell me it's store policy. I've left groceries on the counter with them staring in disbelief. But a man's gotta eat, so now I just rob their bags. As I leave I grab a handful of those reusable shits. Don't even use them, just take em.

Also self checkout aisle is a gold mine. Everyone else is doing it. Why not us?

That is the modern environmentalists way. No context or future impacts are ever taken into account. Only the feelgoodism of the one step they take.

This started in Europe a decade ago, if not longer. This is a conditioning stress test to see how far they can push people before they complain or even notice.

How are you gonna drink without straws? In plastic wrappings, of course.

I don't use straws for anything other than milkshakes.

But if you pay 10 cents per bag, then it's ok for the environment

Apples vs. Oranges…plastic bags are a total litter nuisance, my blood boils seeing plastic bags in creeks and streams all the time. Only masks littered about makes me madder.

bill_in_texas 12 points ago +12 / -0

I agree, but the proximate cause of litter and illegal dumping is shitty people, not plastic bags. Leftists use the same argument to try and ban guns.

boreal_storm 7 points ago +7 / -0

So, the answer is to not litter, right?

3
HeavyMetalPatriot 3 points ago +3 / -0

Mask litter enrages me...and its all over the SoCal beaches and hiking trails.

What in the actual fuck - how does this even happen??? Dumbass Karens decide halfway through their day to suddenly toss aside their face diaper? Or do they just toss one on the ground and put on a fresh one?

I hate these people. I firmly believe most of these littering scum are also climate cultists. There's just too much crap where libtards have been.

I used to share your view. Then I realised that plastic is simply the hard to degrade parts of a tree in a different form.

preferredfault 3 points ago +3 / -0

Not even just plastic, but also a VERY small amount. A plastic grocery bag weighs about 4-5 grams. Or 0.01 pounds. It would take nearly 500 bags to use 1 full pound of plastic. Or if we go even further, about half a days worth of America's oil usage, for the entire years usage of plastic bags....and that's if they aren't recycled or repurposed. We're talking about worrying about something that is 1/700th of America's oil usage, again, if they are never recycled.

Why do they go after something that is such a small fraction of America's usage, when many things are far more? Money and power from the bottom up. By villainizing the small things, they can work from the bottom up to villainize the bigger things even more.

Yes. Partly because the bags tend to get discarded improperly more often and the rest because the bags are the only concession they can make without directly affecting merchandise and sales.

It's easier/cheaper to give you a paper bag or sell you a "resusable" tote than to get a pound of ham in non-plasticized paper wrap, a loaf of bread in some kind of paper bag, a gallon of milk in several quart sized glass bottles, a pack of napkins in a non-plasticized cardboard box, no pre-made salad at all, and a glass jar of mustard/ketchup.

4
Talon54 4 points ago +4 / -0

I can remember when the bags were paper, mustard and ketchup came in glass, milk came in glass bottles and was delivered to your house, napkins came in boxes, etc. Then plastics came along and fucked up the environment because they were more convenient.

Hippopoonis [S] 2 points ago +5 / -3

The plastic ones they make you buy in Cali are more destructive to the environment than the flimsy plastic ones they banned!

Exactly. At the landfill on Maui and Kauai, that I know of specifically, the wind blows all the plastic bags everywhere. The chain link fence around the landfill on Maui was just solid with plastic bags last time I was there. http://www.islandbreath.org/2009Year/2009-09/090923plasticbags.jpg

Glass weighed to much to ship when Faggots in our Government sold out our country and shipped jobs over seas. They're the ones to blame Black, Brown, Yellow or White we're not the each other's enemies. Can't say the same for the Jews. Jews create all the bad in this world as they're still pissed they never were and never will be God's chosen. Truth

Those plastic grocery bags are environmentally safe. They gasify pretty quick. Tuck one away in a cupboard for a year, and then pull it out. It will fall apart in your hands.

-2
Hippopoonis [S] -2 points ago +1 / -3

Your joking, right?

1
2016TrumpMAGA 1 point ago +1 / -0

No, I'm not. The polymer chains break down and the plastic decomposes into smaller and smaller particles. At the same time the bags oxidize to CO2. The Japanese have developed an enzyme that breaks down PET plastics in a few days.

Hippopoonis [S] -1 points ago +2 / -3

I have at least 100 of them that are over 2 years old. I use them to clean the cat boxes out. They are as strong now as they were when I took them home from Albertsons.

2016TrumpMAGA 1 point ago +1 / -0

Weird. Must be different composition. If I try to use one that's anything over a few months old, they split - and not along the seams.
