Wake up and smell the coffee

One morning recently, I stopped at a branch of Delifrance on my way to work and bought two croissants and a cup of coffee for breakfast. These three items were put in three separate bags.

When will Delifrance understand that reducing waste - in this case two bags - is necessary for the planet's survival, as well as more profitable for companies that refuse to provide unnecessary bags? When I told the clerk that one bag was more than enough for such a small purchase, he even offered to put the three bags into another, larger bag. Some people will never learn, because that's what their bosses tell them.

Wake up and smell the coffee, Delifrance.
