Plas­tic bags are bad yet we use them to throw out our rub­bish

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

The whole is­sue of plas­tic bags: it’s a vicious cy­cle. “I still can­not un­der­stand how many peo­ple are un­aware and maybe too lazy to take care of the en­vi­ron­ment with us­ing re­us­able jute,” said Selma in the let­ter, dated April 10. What do you throw your trash/garbage out in? Jute? Carry it with your hands? - 100% of peo­ple use plas­tic for trash/garbage. There are two types of peo­ple - 1. Those who use the same plas­tic shop­ping bags (given at shops to carry their shop­ping) at home as garbage bags, or bags or pack­ing bags (point is - it IS reused); 2. Peo­ple who buy ‘Garbage Plas­tic Bags’ at a pre­mium to show they are kind to the en­vi­ron­ment. Yaaaa - every­one, Selma is the be­ing kind to the en­vi­ron­ment by buy­ing plas­tic bags to throw out garbage. Rob Jones Dubai
