    No it isn't, they are allowed to get the 100points bonuses the same as everyone else. However, they can't eat what they buy, and that's their choice and not the supermarket discriminating.

    I'm pretty sure it's a wind up :)

    Good for Morrison's though, leading by example.

    This is awesome news! Should be doubly environmentally helpful for those popping to the shops on the way home from the office, as orphan tupperware in office kitchens is a universal issue too. (Take your pick, just got to match the lids!)

  • Good in one way. But bad in others most fruit and veg doesn't need a bag of any sort. Also I've seen pre packed bananas and cucumber halfs in 2 layers of plastic wrapping. Ridiculous.

    Just once anxiety - how soon before Morrisons is sued for food poisoning caused by food brought home in an not-clean-enough container?

    I'll take a risk on the reusable coffee cup as I clean it, I drink from it & I'll take the fall if I fail in that, but meat & fish can do quite a bit of damage if not looked after properly.

    Does anyone know what precautions Morrisons is taking, if any?

    I would hope that meats and fish go into an inexpensive, thin, biodegradable bag - the type similar to the cheap dog poop bags that your fingers go right through - and a cost label is stuck on this bag. Then you place it into your own container with the lid off, or unsealed) and only seal it once it has gone through the checkout. It would save on those infernal plastic trays, which are not recyclable - not to mentioned the clingwrap.

    I think it is a brilliant idea and Morrisons are to be applauded for implementing this. I just need to visit now and see for myself how it works.
