A few months ago, whenever I asked a vendor not to put my items to a plastic bag, I got a confused stare or a smirk or a tease. Then they would comment about being eco friendly (in a sarcastic tone). That’s how people react to us being green.
Recently though when I bought some custom pins, I noticed that they no longer give me the same reaction. Now, they would just nod and remember me as the lady who say no to plastic.
