I bought this environmentally friendly bad a few weeks ago at Arpico. It was like 75 bucks and I thought it was a good idea at the time. They happily put my stuff in the new eco bag and I was on my way.
The thing about an eco bag is your supposed to reuse it. So I took it back today. To my surprise I was told I can’t take the bag in. Their “leave your bags at the counter outside” policy contradicted with my quest to save the earth.
I explained to the security guy that they sold me the bad to spare the use of polythene and I was going to take it in. I even showed that it was empty and I was going to put the stuff I buy in it.
After 15 seconds of explaining and the other security guy at the exit telling this guy to let me go, he got off my case.
Arpico please brief your employees so I don’t have to.
I’m still pissed at the whole thing. I’m going to keep taking my bag back, that is if I feel like shopping there again. Because unlike your social responsibility show that you put on I care about where I live.
