Plastic has become a global environmental issue, with more and more shops removing single-use plastic bags from in-store shopping as they aim to improve their sustainability footprint.

This inventive method by the Vancouver, Canada, East West Market, was created to put shoppers off using harmful plastic bags by covering them with embarrassing slogans.

For those unlucky shoppers who forget to bring their “bag for life” they will be forced to use embarrassing plastic bags with slogans such as “Wart Ointment Wholesale and Into the Weird Adult Video Emporium” on them.
