I refuse or decline the plastic bag about 2-3 times daily. I enter a store, they want to put one bag of Chips or Crisp in another plastic bag. I buy anything and they want to put in a plastic bag.
I cannot find a trash bin.
In many countries on the planet, disposal of trash is a problem. I will leave the receipt, the wrapper, everything in the store, rather than carry it for a mile or kilometer, according to how you think. I also do not want ants in my room. If I put a candy wrapper in my pocket, I am inviting ants to my room.
It has come to my attention, that I can refuse a bag about 80 percent of the time. I want a bag in the super markets or sometimes. I like to get them to use to hold trash inside my room. If they are big, however my guess is the world is giving out about about 9 billion bags, I am guessing, however at least 6 billion could be declined.
The number of plastic bags is annoying.
Try to find a waste bin in Philippines or India, or Thailand. It can be annoying for a conscientious person. Recycling is still bullshit, I am still trying to find any place to throw trash, recycling is just a pipe dream.
