    -Bans plastic bags

    Sells plastic bags for garbage cans in aisle 3.

  2. Its a way to get people to buy more kitchen catchers (garbage bags for the kitchen) because everyone I know uses plastic bags from various purchased items including groceries

  3. What does this mean for the Bagged Milk industry? I thought Canadians couldn’t live without Bagged Milk?

    I’m just going to go to Walmart then
    I hate it when companies get political

  5. Years go there were paper bags and they were mostly adequate. Plastic bags were definitely not game changers.

  6. Plastic can be recycled into energy. An inventor in France invented a machine for that.

    They have gone completely off the deep end. I shop at Sobeys / Safeway less and less.

  8. So, are they also going to ban SINGLE USE Glad trash bags? Ziploc bags? The only reason we’re picking on grocery bags, are because they are visible in the landfill. I don’t know about everyone, but the plastic grocery bags do double & triple use for me. (I even have a pattern for knitting the bags into… bags!)
