Now this is a genius way to get people to start using reusable bags!

A market in Vancouver is printing embarrassing plastic bags with the message “Avoid The Shame. Bring a Reusable Bag.” printed underneath as a way to encourage shoppers to bring their own environmentally-friendly bags.

Some of the fake “embarrassing businesses” include Dr. Toews Wart Ointment Wholesale. Again, genius.
