Imagine one cart with an average amount of shopping has over seven bags. A few hundred carts a day means several thousands of bags a day. A few hundred supermarkets a day with thousands of carts is several million bags a day.
Almost all of it goes straight in the bin. All of it goes to a garbage dump which never leaves our land for hundreds of years to come and a lot of it is also seen in drains, canals, roads, beaches and more.
In the absence of laws or effective communication to change this, which is happening globally, please take your own reusable bags with you.
