Went to morrisons on my way home from work on friday, only to find they no longer have carrier bags.so stood at the checkout wondering what to do, was told they do have bags, e/f ones made from recycyclable bamboo or watever.for £2.50 each. so I bought one of those. and I guess each time I go to morrisons I need to remember to use it to take my non recyiclable shopping bags with me. honestly.

    If I forget my bag, I normally trawl the shelves for a box I can “recycle” instead.

    Was it that they didn’t have any, or were they tucked out of sight and you had to ask for them? 
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    *aisles and *points.

    Most supermarkets stopped using plastic bags years ago. We have had 'bags for life' (which are replaced when they 'die') for yonks.

    Since coronavirus hit we have been having home deliveries of groceries and even they don't come in bags, we put our bags for life and a couple of laundry baskets on the doorstep and the drivers put our stuff in those. It's a faff but we're saving the planet. I hope!

    It would seem that instead of flimsy carrier bags going to landfill or the municipal incinerator it’s big thick ‘bags for life’ that are going after single use 😧

    We’ve managed to get into the habit now of taking cool boxes & jute bags etc in the boot when we go to do a big shop. (We wheel the trolley out to the car and pack the shopping there). 

    For unplanned visits buying smaller amounts of shopping we usually have a folded nylon or cotton bag tucked away in a pocket.

    I have seen those super shopper bags being used once then dumped with rubbish. As I saw a new design of bag at my work and a few days later, saw one when I was wombling (litter picking).

    People that don’t reuse B4L and super shopper bags have more money than sense. Should be ashamed!

    Even customers were coming into my work during the first lockdown where it was normal to queue for 40 mins plus! They weren’t going shopping ad hoc like that!
