Good announcement from the Big 2. Of course it's been in place at Aldi since Year 1.

Expect added effort from the plastics industry though to replace lost business. And I wonder how much of a dent it makes in pollution - there's so much plastic everywhere. I'm typing on it now.

Coming back to the personal. How do I get my rubbish out to the Otto now? This is a problem of great moment. I only really visit Woolies to get a few plastic bags for this purpose.
Can we bring back the paper shopping bags?
A renewable and degradable resource.


An excellent idea. They've been doing this for years in Europe.

I'll let you in on a trick: all that plastic you buy - wrappers, plastic bags, the lot - can be recycled at Coles and Woolworths.

Along with paper and bottle recycling and compost, I hardly throw anything out. A small shopping bag of bits and bobs (usually metal or foil) in the neighbours bin every couple of months.

Use the soft plastic recycling bins at Coles and Woolies, leftards. You'll wonder how you ever lived without them.

I did a huge post holiday shop today so it was gi-smacking-gantic and bag less, and we nailed it.

I got 4 of those large flexible tubs which I left in the car, then at the checkout put everything back into the trolley then at the car put everything straight into the tubs. I've used those things for landscaping and carried 40kgs in them and they never break. Straight from the car to the kitchen with no tins or bottles threatening to fall out like they do with thin bags.




I use these things.

They fold flat when not in use, and when I want them they're there waiting for me. They'll carry all the weight you need for groceries.




we are not all SUPERSTUDS are we??...strewth!

I go to Bunnings to get bags of mulch, I find it does help to keep weeds down..last time I bought 6 of the buggers..and was very lucky to have a "team member" right there and  he put them on the trolley  for me so nice...  gawd it was heavy even pushing .. anyway eventually went to the car and lucky me a guy was just getting out of his car   and offered to help me again    Smiley

I offered him a cup of tea if he would come and get them out at the other end...... he laughed   Roll Eyes they always do?.. Wink Wink


so take the stuff out a bit at a time instead of lifting it all in one go.  Cheesy Cheesy

... If you knew me, you would realize that I have done more, been more places, have more friends, seen more things and ennjoyed life more than you can even imagine...


That's why Valkie is such a racist, bigoted, Islamophobe? Travel is understood to broaden the mind, not pervert, and shrivel it up.

Valkie is one-dimensional. Thick!

Thank god I don't know Valkie.

Valkie's phrenologist should get an order of Australia award for tolerance and endurance beyond and above the call of duty.


Ramble away little troll.

I have asked you what you do, and you fear to answer.
Like everything in your sad little life you are again afraid.
Being the cowaed you are meansvyou will have a short and rather dissapinting life.
Constantly living in fear of everything and anybody, you try, in vain, to prop up you flagging and depleted boyhood by insulting people who are better than you could ever dream to be.

I know your type, I have delt with them in my life and walked away laughing at them.
You are thevweak coward that mumbles insults under your breath when I leave.
You are the timid little twerp who shouts comebacks when you are at home by yourself.
You are the cowardly dreamer who pretends to fight imaginary attackers in you little rented room.
You are the avitar in some video game who fligs themselves into battle, because you know in real life you could never do it.
You are a joke, a has been before you ever were.
You have nothing to offer and have nothing of worth.
You are a pointless existance and no longer worthy of interacting with.

Goodby little troll.
I tried to help you, but its obvious that you cannot be helped, do not wish to be helped.
Live in your little fantisy world where you feel tough by insulting people from behind your keyboard.

Because you know, deep down, if you admit it.
You are too much of a coward to ever say anything to anyones face.

Begone

Not a superstud?  Why not fit a towbar on your electric wheelchair and tow the trolley up your front door ramp?



I'm 68.. have serious heart troubles and can't walk up the drive from the garden shed without stopping to hang on to the garbage bin .. I still load my own car at Bunnings ... feminists are wimps by nature and by birth.... if they find me, it will be with my boots on....

Bury me with my beret.... or leave yourself out of it....
(sadly I did not leave my beret on my brother's coffin to be buried with him - I think in some ways he deserved it more)...


Grow some courage... some of us learned it at a very young age.....

I can't help it.
I get as many plastic bags as I can, then when I have about 30 of em. I throw em around the Supermarket carpark (late at night) as I drive through.
I've been doing it for years.
I need help.
I'm obsessed with it.
I even throw em along main streets in a 'drive by'.

Are you suggesting that Valkie (a grown man, I assume) would resort to physical violence if someone said to him "Valkie also folds flat when not in use"?

Tell me you're not serious.

Unforgiven is one of BigOl64's troops.
He sits in the grass like a turd and shoots off little bullets of harm from a safe position of anonymity some distance away from you.
The modern Soldier is much like a Troll.

Valkie can be scared off by opening a dictionary. Not so Rhino who wouldn't know what a dictionary was.
