At the supermarket in Siggiewi, Malta

at JJ's in Siggiewi Malta, learning the basics about Maltese living. This is the fruit-and vegetable section. There are also vans at some places that one can buy fresh vegetables from. An attendat was ready to weigh and mark the fruits I selected, and then he put them all in the same bag. Impressive from a sustainability perspective - use much less plastic that way!
Also, there are no plastic bags to carry home the groceries in! One is supposed to bring one's own bag. I had forgotten mine (I do carry one around normally, got it at New Leaf in Santa Cruz when shopping groceries with Josh and Ariel) so we were given a box to carry in.
