Looking for a plastic-free lunch to get on-the-go? REFUSE the little plastic bags that most street food stalls offer and ask for PAPER instead. Abu Ahmed’s shop, next to Ghazala market in Asalah Square, has paper and if asked they will put your sandwiches – and even a fresh bunch of arugula – in paper. We have shared the “Basic Concept of Plastics” (in Arabic) with the owner and he has shown interest in learning more about the problems with plastic. If more customers begin to REFUSE the plastic bags, it may help convince them that paper is okay (and that we aren’t the only crazy ones in town!).
