It is extraordinary to think that (as reported today) the number of plastic bags saved in SA since the plastic bag ban six months ago, comes not in the thousands but in the millions (some suggest 6 million in six months). The return to the more responsible solution seems timely .
Strange little turn to the story though. In wanting to suggest that we need to guard against other dangers, the cleanliness of reusable bags is mentioned.
Wash them often, one shop owner says! Good idea!
Or buy replacements....rather defeats the purpose!
