I’ve been collecting these shopping bags for some time now, hoping I could, one day, bring them with me grocery shopping; but every time I reached the check out counter, I felt uncomfortable taking out my shopping bags, fearing the cashiers and baggers would give me the stare.
So when H started coming home with groceries packed in brown paper bags that were almost always ripped at the bottom from the weight, I looked at him with eyes as big as saucers and asked, “Why are they in paper bags?”
He said, “Pasig has enforced the ‘No plastic bag’ policy”. I was ecstatic! Finally, I can now use my shopping bags!
