The story of the environmentally-friendly bags
On visiting Metro last weekend I was happy to see that they have got onto the Environmental bandwagon and are encouraging the use of cloth bags as opposed to plastic bags. Of course you need to buy these bags for Rs. 99 each which I don’t mind paying because it is a one-time investment and I can use them again and again. The bags are quite strong and large and can accommodate a lot of groceries at one time.
Is there a ‘but’ coming up? Yes you guessed it. There certainly is. Considering that Metro is not giving these bags away for free, and I am having to pay Rs. 99 for each one that I buy, why am I then forced to promote their 3 sponsors who have obviously given them the money for the bags? Am I missing something here?
Metro is not a charity or an NGO so it is absolutely not justified that they should have it both ways. Either I pay for bags that are not defaced with so many large logos, or I get them for free – then of course I have no reason to complain. What say you?
