The continued use of plastic bags is a serious insult to the environment. In Slovakia, most people opt to pay a few cents for the plastic bag rather than carry their own reusable one.

Is it a problem with people's consciousness (of what they are doing), it a "don't care" attitude, or a "Can't be bothered" attitude?

One solution is to phase out plastic bags altogether. If Confucius' ethics education is not enough, then strict legislation makes the difference.
