einfach nur Leo : In Germany you have to pay a small amount for plastic bags in supermarkets. That makes people reuse or bring their own bags.

ᴋᴡᴀɴ : *_This is a problem but the food is so good from takeout_*

Sean Tiu : People often forget that the first of the three R's is REDUCE. The best way to save earth is to just stop producing unecessary waste, not recycling.

Coolp1000 : Save the Earth

TJ Liwanag : I agree wholeheartedly with 99% of this video. The 1% I don’t agree with is dude putting ketchup on his potato chips at 2:03 #isthisathing

Gipsy Danger : Fact: it takes 600 years for a plastic fishing line to fade away in the ocean.

ᴋᴡᴀɴ : *_This man is a genius_* 👑 😆 👕 👖

Muskaan Sengupta : Finally, something important, something we should care about, *FINALLY* makes it to trending.

Virginia Gafken : Pleaseeeee do one on amazon packaging !!! Drives me crazy I’ll get four boxes for one thing!!!


manasi : Vox basically reads my mind

murrrmur : Alright, the comments are funny, but finish the god dam video before you claim he was asking you to put a tuna sandwich into your back pocket.

MisterAxeMan : You're right! Let me just put my spaghetti in my pocket!

MisterAxeMan : *Cashier:* "Would you like that for here or to go?" *Me:* "To go, oh wait but don't put it in a box just put it in my pocket so I can be *eCo fRiEnDlY."*

Kailei Paige : When I go out to eat I bring a reusable container for my leftovers. I also have a pencil box where I keep utensils for ordering takeout or eating at work!

ElyssaAnderson : Wait, you guys don't eat your bags too? Is everyone else super wasteful, or am I just a weirdo?

Colleen : I'm totally on board. Vox you are my favorite channel you broaden my horizons and constantly change the way I see things. I'm so glad you exist that tears escape my eyes. THANK YOU VOX AND HAVE A GREAT 2018

Griffin Crouch : The reusable take out thing would be incredibly profitable in large cities, including mine. That could be interesting way to entrepreneur.

Lul M8 : 2:32 Ive worked in retail before and trust me some customers would act like you tried to kill them if you didnt give them a bag... i can already hear the Up-itty voice “AND A BAG?!” “Ummm.... Are you serious?!” “This is unbelievable” “You expect me to hold and carry my burrito?!” “Can i speak to your manager?” And of course the people who just stand there still, and stare at you.

Guy Scafidi : Wait, you actually get ketchup without asking? I want to know this magical fast food place.

Decode Channel : If you're not buying recycled products, you're not really recycling.

Benjamin Browning : does this guy order take out for every meal?

Captian Echo : I use the plastic bags as garbage bags for my bathroom.

Juliet Townsend : meh- people dont care- they not only want every bag you can offer - they want it double bagged.I once dealt with someone who actually said- I like your to go containers- I always save one bite just so I can get a few... Yes they boxed up one bite per container.....People dont want to help- they want convenience.

Jasmine Doyle : Why does this not have more view? It's so important!!!

Shelby Rose : Another way to help fight climate change is to go vegan! Animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gases than all of our world's transportation (cars, planes, etc) combined. If you want to learn more watch Cowspiracy on netflix, its a great doc :)

Scott W : Plastic bag used to carry a paper bag? Clearly you don't have kids. Ever try to take two little ones into the restaurant. The paper bag is filled to the top and will rip. As a parent carrying one kid and holding the other minion from trying to claim the restaurant as theirs; looping your hand through a plastic bag is a pretty good idea.

Callan Whitney : Save Earth-chan!

N·J Media : "Trash is fake news"

Riswan AP : So Big Shaq's "no ketchup" principle is actually very eco-friendly

thewanderingpig : Really loving this series

Mybackisinpain : Just throw it in the woods thats what I do

Shriyog Ingale : I think about this every time I choose take away !

Calamity_Triger : 51% of greenhouse gasses come from animal agriculture.Go vegan and reduce your massive carbon footprint

Ultimate Warrior : They should hand out cool University water bottles during orientation, so the students jump on that routine from the start

m94h : I'm tired of food packages. Now I buy biscuits and they come in a box, inside that box they are wrapped in more plastic... And each day it seems to go worse, they try to sell us food just individually and for each moment that now with two snacks I end up throwing away more plastic than the food I've eaten

Vicious Zero : Save Earth-chan

Home is where the heart is. : *TIME TO TAKEOUT THE TRASH*

Ciaran Connerton : I love how America has these great innovative ideas that other countries have been doing for years

Nate the Great : Vox also makes a lot of trash 👌🏻👌🏻

Juan Rodriguez : Shocking how soft vox was on the carbon footprint of animal based diets, while enthusiastic about much less effective climate solutions. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of zero waste as it is an inevitable necessity, but they've twisted the focus on what is the most important component of fighting climate change, which is undoubtedly switching to a plant based diet.

Heather McGuire : #Even-though the plastic bags are recyclable they are NOT accepted at the recycling plant. Why can't someone come up with an easy way to extract them from the other recyclable trash OR make the bags extremely compostable

CodeChimp : If you order on UberEats, please write extra instructions for "no utensils."

Peasant of Pontus : Putting a burrito not wrapped in plastic in your bag is a great recipe for coating everything else in there with sauce and grease. Just saying.


issa knife : Where’s his neck

codesneezes : this is probably the best series Vox has done. we need way more of these

Rodrigo : where's season two?!

SimmonSays : Now thinking about it, I really do hate all the extras I get with a burrito from Chipotle. I'd rather just get the burrito in-hand.

TazTalksYouListen : Stop "incentivizing" via "global warming" propaganda. Just speak the truth and it will eventually win. Trash takes up space that we would rather use for virtually anything else. That's good enough.
