supermarket: reusable bag

d last time we went 2d puregold supermarket in zabarte, caloocan city 2buy groceries. we brought-in several reusable shopping bags (greenbags fr sm-shoemart). d guard did not let our bags enter d supermarket so we deposited d greenbags 2d baggage check-in counter. apparently dey have a policy not 2allow empty bags inside d supermarket.

wen wer about 2pay d cashier, d cashier informed us dat we won’t get any points by using d green bags (probably coz since itz fr sm & not fr puregold or dey don’t have reusable bags point system in-place). i told her dat itz ok since wer not aftr d points but 2help save some plastic bags….she was not happy w/ dat so i stressed 2her dat point system w/ reusable bags (if ever dey have one) is not suppose 2b a gimmick but a chance 4customers help lessen d amt of plastic bags polluting d environment….

most likely, (if it is really d case) d puregold mgt came up w/ an enviro prog since deir competitors r doin it…but somewer along d way, dey 4got 2stress d real message 2deir employees…..

how can pple bring native bayongs in supermarkets den? pple should b encourage 2use reusable bags no matter wat….tis should b d goal & getting points or freebies in doing so should just b an incentive & not d end purpose…

we love 2shop at puregold coz dey’r near our place & robinsons as well as sm supermarkets r quite expensive…hope dat d environmental consciousness of d puregold mgt & itz workers will improve in d very near future…

i hope tis film will be shown in d philippines in dvery near future…..

Three years in the making, this cinéma-vérité feature from acclaimed filmmaker Joe Berlinger is the epic story of one of the largest and most controversial legal cases on the planet. An inside look at the infamous $27 billion Amazon Chernobyl case, CRUDE is a real-life high stakes legal drama set against a backdrop of the environmental movement, global politics, celebrity activism, human rights advocacy, the media, multinational corporate power, and rapidly-disappearing indigenous cultures. Presenting a complex situation from multiple viewpoints, the film subverts the conventions of advocacy filmmaking as it examines a complicated situation from all angles while bringing an important story of environmental peril and human suffering into focus.
