If I am not mistaken, no plastic bags given on Saturdays has been practiced long time ago in Selangor and Penang. I still remember, I went to TESCO Semenyih last year on Saturday and have to bring all the groceries to my car without plastic bags.
And today, it is a campaign not to give plastic bags on Saturdays. A nationwide campaign. Meaning that, will also include Kelantan lah. So, for this time being, if you still want to have plastic bags just avoid yourself from shopping on Saturdays. Hahaha
With the campaign, shoppers nationwide will now have to pay 20sen if they want the shopping centre or outlet they visit on Saturdays, to give them a plastic shopping bag. The money collected from the fee would be channelled into a special fund used to conduct environment preservation and protection related programmes as well as activities for consumers and communities. Meaning that shopping complex did not selling plastic bags for you 😉
Anyway, I do support this campaign. Hope soon, no more plastic bags given. Towards green and save cost also.
