Back in phillippines in year 1985 i haven't seen softdrinks in plastic, all are in glass bottles even the 8 oz. Drinks is the smallest but still in glass bottles but compare now, omg, almost everything are in plastic, i don't know if glass bottles still exist because as what i saw people always prefer disposable and light to carry, with the glass bottles we have to deposits some money for it, to make it sure that you tak cares and returned it to the store where you buy...

Cellophane/cellulose is wood pulp based, which means cutting down a lot of trees if this were to take off in North America.

I'm all for reducing plastic waste and living zero waste, but it's not always an accessible goal for lower-income families. Here in Canada, buying 4L of milk in plastic costs $4.50. Buying 946ml of milk in a returnable glass bottle costs $4.99 (plus a $2 deposit). The family with the baby found this out similarly in the video. I sometimes feel that zero waste living is quite a privilege.

Ever since Asians invaded Canada, the whole country turned into garbage, expensive garbage country. I looked over Australia, not much. They have it under control, but thanks to our liberal government. Now there is nobody left in this country other than Asians and their piglets children.

Truth be told I missed going to Chinatown in the US for grocery shopping since I get many varieties of fruits and veggies without them being prepackaged and also multiple butcher shops for meat and fresh seafood. Also a lot of bulk items of difference dried goods that are weight by lb. Sure they aren’t thinking of the environment but it’s a more personal shopping experience in small ma an pa stores. The problem with prepackaged items is because people want to save time from weighting the items and just want to grab and go.

The demand chain starts with the CONSUMER. The person who has the most control over the suppliers is the customer who stops buying plastic products. Yes the stores have some control but if the consumer demand is for plastic-wrapped products then they have no reason to change

I don't understand why the complaint is that going Zero Waste is expensive... it's virtually free after either one single purchase of reusable bags or you can upcycle glass containers from previous purchases. Stop buying milk. Make your own or buy plant-based milk. It requires a change in lifestyle that is not even necessarily inconvenient. Want to know what's inconvenient? Having to move to Mars because we ruined the planet God gave us.

People should start making better choices so the markets will have to adapt their services according the costumers' needs. Transform prepackaged with bulk and sell sustainable containers. Markets should be taxed for the waste they make and compensate the damage made from sold products with plastic.

I would buy less plastic if all stores close to me started selling plastic free options and bulk...they should really consider doing that, and that individually wrapped coconut is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. Meanwhile I think we should all at least bring out own reusable bags

Instead of making them pay for plastic bags, you can also offer them cheaper linen bags. 3 dollar per linen bag, 5 dollar per plastic bag.

That was so kind of the journalist to just offer the jar and alternative bags to the people outside of the store, honestly with what i've seen (the research that i've done) the most expensive part of going plastic free is the alternative to the plastic bags and the container.

It's such a shame that so often lose produce costs much more than plastic wrapped. These single use plastic packaging needs to go. I believe many of us want to do the right thing but so many of us live on a budget too so it comes down to the bottom like and we are stuck buying against our ethics for lack of financial choice.

I work at a 99 in California and I work produce and the amount of plastic and cardboard used is ridiculous to me. And the amount of food waste pisses me off mostly. Found out our waste produce (moldy and spoiled) gets turned into cow feed. So now America is feeding all live stock like swine and that is disgusting to me.

You can't escape plastic packaging bcos all manufacturing uses shrink wrap. I worked in the cut flower industry. All flowers are transported in a plastic sleeve. Then the commercial sleeve is removed and binned . Floral bouquet is arranged then wrapped in more plastic. Paper would be better for flowers less sweating less mould.more sustainable/recyclable. Any place in industry where public don't see the waste nothing changes

Glass bottles are expensive on every front. They are expensive to ship because of their weight and fragility. They are reusable, but reusing a glass bottle is still more expensive than producing a new plastic bottle.

question about the one-use bags, do they stil come standard and free in Canada? Europe made the change I think some 5 to 10 years ago for a law, the grocery bags can't be free and standard given, just available and a mere 0,05 € for bag, and just having to think about paying that really small amouth for the bag, really lessened the number of one-usage bags enourmously! even more cause supermarkts also have to offer a more durable bags as alternative.
