[GreenYes] Plastic from oil



Yes, I've taken it upon myself to educate every clerk I come
across. When they wrap up my single item or two and I have a bag
with me (which is almost all of the time), I take it out of the bag,
saying let's save a bag. Do you know where plastic comes
from? Oil! The Middle East! Then they go Ohhhh! They are ALWAYS
surprised. I mean, how many high schools do you know that teach oil
chemistry? So we have to do it.
