Everyone will have to bring their own glass to colmados, etc to share a jumbo now haha (doubt it) but that'd be funny.
    I never understood why people would want to drink beer from a plastic or foam cup. I often bring my own glass for that reason. Also, I do not understand the purpose of the store giving you a bag for ONE item. What is the point. Just carry it in your hand!

    The reason is very simple. Dominicans (that I know who do this) demand a plastic cup because they think it is cleaner than a glass.

    This issue has a different meaning to me home in Canada than it does in the DR. All of my plastic bags at home are used for household garbage and ultimately wind up in a landfill. Now I will have to purchase plastic bags for that purpose. Hardly mission accomplished.

    In the DR, I have the suspicion that is not always the case.

    Sad to say, but apparently the Press confused Dominica with DR, so this is closed
