Checkout choice

AT supermarkets, our shopping is packed into plastic bags. Or you could choose a carton.

I haven’t seen those huge paper bags that shopping is packaged in overseas.

I had written about this before and may I be permitted to do it again.

At a certain supermarket you had the choice of a plastic or a paper bag. A check out boy (boys who fill your groceries in bags at the cashier’s counter) at that supermarket was an advocate for sustainability, a clean environment, save the trees and anti plastic.

One day he lost his job.


Because at his checkout counter he would ask customers: “Choke a fish or kill a tree?”
