No Mommy! Not a Ziploc!

Isabel Theoret was preparing a sandwich for her
6-year-old son's Kindergarten class one day last week,
when he screamed out, "No Mommy! Not a Ziploc!" 
The child, who lives with his
family in the town of Laval in
Quebec, explained that his
teacher would exclude him from a
contest to win a stuffed teddy
bear if he brought an
environmentally unfriendly
plastic baggie to school.

Gee, Miss Teacher. Whatever happened to finesse?
Even an Eco-mom would question the teaching tactics if their kid came home
crying with a fear of plastic bags.

 

The 6-year old's
father, Marc-Andre Lanciault wrote on his
French-language blog,
L’école et les ziploc
. "Felix reacted as if someone had slaughtered a pig
for his ham sandwich
," said his father, who is CEO and
founder of the technology company INBOX International.
