    Well they’re making ink out of air and bonus for D Ink Man vehicles are involved.

      Ontario has been charging 5 cents for a few years. It's always been a sore spot for me. The grocery chains must have done cartwheels when that piece of legislation passed. I've no doubt that most consumers actually think the bags cost this much. Stores say whatever they make after 'administration' goes to charity. Wouldn't you love to know what they claim to be 'administrative'?! Must be a gold mine for the big players (Loblaws, Sobey's).
      A lot of independent stores charge now too. You know their profit doesn't find it's way to any charity.

      I think the choice of paper bags might have been mentioned at some point. You won't find paper in any of the stores now.
      In fairness; the big stores did give away large carry bags for a good while after the 5 cents was instituted. They cost about $1.00 now. I have several from different sources. Seldom remember to bring them, especially when it's a spur of the moment stop on the way home.

        Actually most ink manufactured today is.
        Edamame is an immature soybean in the pod.
        Virtually all offset inks are soy-based.

          Interestingly, unlike the “single use” plastic bags, those bags that they sell usually can’t be recycled.
          DOOM!

              I think most of the ones I have are just some sort of cotton weave (I'm no expert on materials). Except Sobey's, which has some sort of plasticized finish. Makes it easier to wipe out when your eggs break I suppose.
              In any case, they should all last a long time . . .mainly because I seldom remember to use them, and even if I did. Several of the wineries around here hand them out. I even have one from the cable company.

                Damn... I guess that 6 hours of postal training yesterday wore me out more than I thought.

                  Sorry sir, that is not true at all. Soy based inks make up <3% spot and process inks for offset lithograph.

                  Flax seed, linseed is the vegetable KING of offset printing inks. Always has been and always will be.

                  Unless the miracle of vehicle less ink comes to pass. And that is just blowing air, which has well been expounded upon.

                    is it possible that the packaging extends the life of the shallots? if it reduces the waste of them enough and the packaging is recyclable there may be some justification for it.

                    if not, it is perplexing

                      Shallots in the open will last for about a month. So the clamshell is not needed.
