I agreewith Mr Elgar Lee ("Lack of environmental consciousness here"; last Friday) that more can be done to raise environmental consciousness here. We can start by taking baby steps.
I often buy a loaf of bread or a can of drink from my neighbourhood convenience store. The cashier usually puts the item into a plastic bag, which I decline.
Many shops are doing the same thing.
Why don't we implement a rule that no plastic bag will be provided for purchases of only one or two items?
