    Pattaya cabbies demand higher minimum charge

    They should all be charged under the Trades Descriptions Act and be forced to remove that obsolete sign off the top!
  2. No need to reference the source of my statement - to most sensible people with a grain of intelligence and a pair of eyes it must now be obvious that plastics (bags, bottles etc) are bad for the environment (including plastic bags that may take 10 - 1000 years to decompose - depending on what kind of plastic bags they are - duh!) Waste of space -
  3. In my area they have covered up the landfill with nets, which will probably disappear long before the "substances" they are covering!
  4. What is their job? Apart from NOT investigating allegations of a crime?

    "There had been complaints, including from foreigners, about drivers refusing to use the taxi meter and charging large amounts for short distances," YAWN!
  7. Just love these "inactive posts" - getting paid for doing nothing - can I have one please?
  8. "Plastic waste is one of many types of wastes that take too long to decompose. Normally, plastic items can take up to 1000 years to decompose in landfills. But plastic bags we use in our everyday life take 10-1000 years to decompose, while plastic bottles can take 450 years or more" Nuff said?
  9. My apologies - I did not realise who you were replying to, and if indeed there are NO plastic bags available I can understand your problem, and paper bags are not the answer in a country where torrential downpours are frequent. However, you must/should be concerned by the damage that plastics are doing to the environment, and to say "Keep them coming" because they are "convenient" is in my opinion a bit irresponsible.
  10. In your case you would probably need a Jumbo size!
  11. I think that people are being asked to be a bit more responsible regarding the use of plastic bags, Of course, if you "decide to do some impromptu shopping" then you may have to use plastic bags, but if you know that you are going shopping, then take your own bags with you - use a bit of common sense!
  12. See seancbk Post #80 re 711- all you have to say is "Save Plastic" and they will get your drift. I believe the ball has finally started rolling - as I mentioned in a previous post, shopkeepers are starting to ask if people want plastic bags, and that is a good start. It is up to all of us to ensure that it doesn't lose momentum.
  13. Sir David Attenborough - a very clever man who knows how to get his point across, and I don't think I have ever had cause to disagree with any of his statements.
  14. It's been mentioned numerous times before but if they people had to pay for their plastic bags, the amount used would drastically reduce overnight.
