Just read the article that Selangor state has implemented the 'No plastic day' ruling for Saturday beginning yesterday, 1-1-11. Each plastic bag comes at a price of 20sen, proceeds of which go to charity or some worthy cause.
The ruling applies to hypermarkets, supermarkets and Petronas stations nationwide as launched simultaneously in all states yesterday. In Penang, it's 'no plastic bag and no polystyrene packing at hawker centers' everyday.
What this all means is that I'll have to remember to bring along one of those recyclable bags I've been hoarding all this while. Even gone to the extent of getting two of those (huge) blue carryalls from Ikea! Love them eco-bags. Love their hugeness and ruggedness. Is it just me? Oh well...
What about you? Do you normally have an eco-bag or two for when you need one?
