We received this email from Julie in Barry Vale, Wales:
Hiya Shirley and team,
All supermarkets should purchase jute or other environmentally friendly bags to sell quite cheaply, saying I DID NOT USE ANY CARRIER BAGS FROM and the supermarket name added so they are still advertising but doing something to cut out the use of carrier bags.
Thanks, Julie from Barry, Vale of Glamorgan
We think this is a great idea. One of the team has just returned from Manchester, where grocers and delicatessens like Unicorn and the award-winning Barbakan sell great, inexpensive shopping bags made out of ecologically responsible materials. We would love to see the big supermarkets doing this. What do you think? Leave a comment and let us know. Got any good ideas yourself?
