Almost five months after writing the first part of this entry, I finally found an establishment that gave this paper packaging/bag issue a great thought. Kudos True Value! Look at….
Right–start RIGHT, start here TRUE VALUE!!! The moment the salesperson handed this bag to me, I wanted to sing this:
However, some (or many? most?) stores still use paper bags for compliance sake, who cares about the convenience of the buying customers?!
Nice marketing lines…goodbye functionality!
Sumusunod lang sa batas. Oo. Sumusunod lang kaya hindi nag-iisip? Kung naisip ng True Value ang design nila, bakit hindi yun kayang isipin ng iba?
If stores keep doing things for compliance’s sake, then we’ll just end up destroying more trees, which defeats the purpose of the law. It is the spirit of the law, not the letter, that we should uphold.
