Last Saturday, I visited my parents in Naic, a small town in the province of Cavite. On our way there, we drove thru Jollibee-Tanza Branch for some afternoon snacks. I was surprised to see our take-out in a brown paper bag. The food items inside were also in their individual cartons/paper containers. How nifty and environment-friendly!
I remember when we went grocery shopping at SM Bacoor two weeks ago, we also saw brown paper bags hand-carried by shoppers everywhere we look. It seems Cavite is serious about making the province plastic-free. How laudable a government-initiated campaign it is!
If this government policy to stop the use of plastic in major establishments can be implemented in the provinces, what’s taking so long for the LGUs here in Metro Manila to follow suit? Just asking.
