Thanks for putting the coin next to it, I wouldn't have been able to tell it was cardboard without it.

Yep, becoming a huge thing in Canada to eliminate plastic waste.

but the bread is still in plastic, right?

They all are here, haven't seen a plastic one in years.

Definitely not here. Quebec.

We don't have plastic drinking straws either fwiw, all waxed paper or other compostible stuff. Lots of the little bits of plastic that were common a decade ago have been changed.

My bread bags have had cardboard/carton bag ties for at least 2-3 years - also Québec, Montréal - so definitely here, Québec too


Haven't bought bagged milk for a while though, not sure about those bag ties


yirush OP t1_j9t1m4i wrote

Hmm. That's the first I've seen. Maybe I need to pay more attention.

It probably depends on the brand!


I always get Bon Matin bread (huge variety, whole ingredients, excellent nutritional profile - personal favourite is the Protein one) and they switched to cardboard bag ties some years ago - more reasons to like them!

Wish I could say the same in California, I’ve yet to see a cardboard one.

This is how they should all be

It would reduce waste, but honestly, there is so much freaking plastic on everything that it really wont make a difference. Bigger changes are needed.

There’s no downside though. Perfect is the enemy of good.

Aldi's bread?

La Meunerie Urbaine on Monkland ave. In Montreal. Crazy delicious sour dough.


IdealIdeas t1_j9rrrlp wrote

I always threw the plastic thing out, twisted the bag and sat the bread on the twist and my stepmother would get angry at me.

I say it was just as, if not more effective than using the tie.

much better than those lifetime plastic tabs.

We only just started to get them in aus, roughtly the same time we started trying to handle our own recycling as these things jam up the equipment. or so the radio ad says

How about the bag itself? Is it still plastic? Then what the fuck are you solving by replacing these tiny fucking things? The world has become crazy. Suck that kool aid with your paper straws.


james2432 t1_j9t92yk wrote

everything in Canada is using cardboard now. Paper straws suck btw as in are bad not the actual function


yirush OP t1_j9tki0s wrote

I guess Quebec is distinct in that way.

Wow!! Did you just wake up from a multi year coma?


yirush OP t1_j9tnw0i wrote

Haha. In fact, I kind of did. Anyway, I went to have a closer look at the Provigo down the street and it seems there are a few Quebec bread companies that have also been in a coma. Lotsa plastic.
