|Give us this day our mini-bread?|
|Junk Mail headlines?!|
|Ironically there is even a plastic gift card to collect:-)|
Well ... at least Coles got rid of those single use shopping bags I guess, but it really does highlight the problem of trying to buy something from the supermarket that isn't wrapped or comes in plastic.

I bought $30 worth of petrol and two packets of potato chips from my local Shell petrol station that happened to be run by the Coles supermarket chain and the operator asked me if I wanted a collectible, as my purchase had qualified me for a free one if I wanted to take it.
I nearly said no, but I was intrigued to see if my 30-1 odds hunch was right, plus I knew my niece was collecting these things for her kids, so I said OK and surprise, surprise (and I was) I got a mini loaf of plastic bread.
And it made me realize just how much plastic has gone through my home as far as shampoo bottles, toothpaste tubes, razors, toothbrushes, frozen pea packets, bread wrappers, food containers, drink bottles etc, even though I do make the effort to sort it all into my recycling and general waste bins, which probably all just gets sent to Asia and then dumped at sea for all I know.
|Even the wheelie bins are plastic:-(|
But who really cares I guess when we can ask ourselves are things really as bad as they seem for the future of our children's planet?
