Further to yesterday's post, it seems like the reusable bags are made in China.
Why am I not surprised?
According to this CBC article anyway, 4th paragraph from the bottom, it states:
"Loblaw's reusable bags are about 100 per cent post-recycled plastic and are made in China mostly from recycled bottles"
So....while we're to use (oh...and buy) the reusable bags, you know, for the good of the environment, we're just to ignore the fact these reusable bags, are made in China.
We won't discuss how these bags get here or the negative environmental impact that has. We'll just look the other way.
We also won't discuss how we're in an economic crisis, with Canadians loosing their jobs at an unprecedented rate and yet we buy these bags from where?
Perhaps though, as the above article is five months old, they've changed their ways and are selling bags made in Canada? (I'm sincerely asking because there is not a lot on-line mentioning where these bags are produced....but if they are made in Canada...why not promote that fact?) If they have changed to made in Canada bags, I'd be a little more willing to believe they are truly concerned about the environment and not just trying to cash in on it.
