Forgotten that today is the first Wednesday of the month. Its Bring Your Own Bag day again. I bet some of you have already forgotten about this. It has been more than 6 months since they implemented this scheme.
I’ve blogged about the Bring Your Own Bag Day 6 months ago. That entry won the Ping.sg 2007 Best Citizen Journalism Post award. The results wasn’t very impressive. 3 people bring bags vs 24 people who didn’t in 5 minutes. But ZeeZee commented that it doesn’t matter how positive the response is. At least there are 3 people
I happen to be at Holland V Cold Storage today. Didn’t know it is BYOB day until I walk pass the cashier. Since I’m already there, why not do a follow up? We know that most people wouldn’t bring their bags. But I want to find out if there is any significant increase in the number of people who bring their bag.
So I find myself a good spot at the entrance. Did the counting from 8:10pm to 8:15pm. And below is my results.
Bring your own bag 2 – 21 Never bring your own bag
Surprisingly, the results is almost similar to the results I got 6 months ago. No significant changes. Kinda disappointed. Was hoping there is an increase in the number of people who bring their own bag.
But the good thing is we are still having this event on the first Wednesday of every month. Lets hope that we would see a better results next time.
