While Nino is in the store and I am left mulling around outside due to my intolerance, I stop to take a picture for you guys.
This guy walks out of the store with an inquisitive look. “Oh, I’m just documenting the giant greenwash.” He clearly thinks I am nutso and walks away.
OK fine. The sign might be pleasant to the untrained eye, but come on dude, don’t you get it?! Last time I checked, taking it easy on Earth didn’t equal a giant plastic sign advertising plastic bags that are meant to replace plastic bags.
Out comes Nino saying that the gal at the counter put his four items in a bag without asking. When he noticed, he felt so angry that he took the items out and shoved the bag back. “Whoooa! I didn’t want a bag!”
I pointed out that he will probably never use a bag again in his life, which is probably a weird realization for a newbie. Nino thought yes, but said that what was even weirder is that the person behind him had “like 11 bags”. And it was then that I knew, that Nino’s initiation period was over. You’re in. Welcome to plastic-free babe.
Here are a few other pictures I took this week. My phone is full of these random offenses.
