We see government, activist sites and friends encouraging us to bring our own. Bring our own bags to go shopping, bring our own cups to the coffee shop. The reaction from the shops however seems to contradict this !

So my intention is to start a web site and actually put up the actual shops that are not letting us. Also it should help dispel some of the myths.

Myths

Against Health Standards

This is nonsense. It is hard to find that it is nonsens, because it says nowhere in Australian Standards that you can't use a customer bought cup. Even the health gov sites talk about encouraging reusability and environment. Nothing anywhere mentions that it against health standards. In the end consumers have the say, so lets start documenting it now.

Concerns

  • Will the vegi shop stop me bringing bags?
