Last Wednesday, I went to SM Makati Supermarket and did some grocery. At the check-out counter, I was asked, “Ma’am, paper bag or plastic bag?”
I said, “OK, paper bag.”
The bagger then put all my groceries in two paper bags. I had to carry the two paper bags by hugging them. With my shoulder bag and camera sling, I realized that it would be difficult for me to carry all of them to the shuttle parking. So, I asked the bagger if I could have a plastic bag to put my two paper bags in.
The bagger went, “You will have to pay Php3.00 ma’am. It’s our Green Wednesday rule.” Or something to that effect.
SM Supermarket’s purpose for this Green Wednesday dawned on me. Feeling guilty and since I’m also an advocate of going green, I endured the little inconvenience and carry the paper bags.
I commend SM really for all their green initiatives!
