Thailand Banned Plastic Bags, So People Came Up With Funny Alternatives

Pollution is a growing problem.  More people meaning more shopping and more plastic bags. Plastic bags are a major contributor to the escalating debris and trash build up around the globe.

With that concern in mind, Thailand kicked off 2020 fighting its environmental problem by banning all single-use plastic bags at some of the major stores. “Thailand was ranked sixth among the world’s top countries that dump waste into the sea.”

12 Everyday Things We Use That We Didn’t Knew Had A Name

Thailand no longer allows major stores to offer customers single-use plastic bags, and by 2021, they won’t be allowed at any shops. The move has inspired shoppers to reuse everyday household items for their errands, which is arguably better for the environment than buying a new reusable bag.

But you might expect Thailand’s citizens to take to social media raging with protests. However, this isn’t the case at all. What’s really cool about it is the way shoppers are adapting to it. They’re not whining on social media or anything.

On the contrary, they’re embracing the changes. Photos of Thais carrying their groceries in T-shirts, suitcases, buckets, and even ceramic pots have been going viral. Instead, most citizens have calmly moved on and found suitable, often bizarre, replacements that more than do the job of plastic bags.

People in Thailand are stuffing their T-shirts, luggage, laundry hampers, and buckets with groceries after a ban on plastic bags in select retailers in the country went into effect on January 1st.

Creative shoppers brought in wheelbarrows, fishing nets, and even what looks like an impressive piece of pottery to haul their groceries home, and they perfectly capture how creative people get when it comes to something they’re really passionate about.
