Hope this short note finds you well.
For the last while I've been working one day a week for a local market vendor.
I end up having to give a plastic carry bag to about 8 out of 10 people.
Where do these guys think they're shopping? It's a market. Bring your bags!
The environment movement has failed on this one.
And how did we end up with people making purchases for $2.70 on debit cards? And whatever happened to the retailers' campaign to tell people that it costs them (via retailers) more to use a credit card for electronic purchase than a debit card ... because retailers are charged more per purchase.
And how is it that a city the size of this one hasn't a food recovery project like Second Harvest in Toronto?
I'll spare you a longer rant on food waste.
Thanks for letting me blow off some steam here.
