hmm, our local one in ashton didn't tell us that today, we were made to buy some of those bloody awful green ones because they had none of the free 'normal' ones left.
#3
Yeah I got 3 for free today from Portrack Lane

They are doing it so that when new govt. regulations regarding the use of plasti bags comes into force, more people are using the bags for life they are giving out now,.
#4
not if this is a good thing , as they only usually last me once, even the handles of those tesco green bags fall off, notr to self buy less beer,lol
#5
Last time they did this it was because they were removing the 'normal' bags from the tills. Apparently to many people complained that there hadn't been enough time to get their 'bags for life' so Asda decided to start giving out the normal ones again. I imagine this is the same think, Take 2.
To the above poster who said that they only ever last one trip anyway, yeah, buy less beer, (or better idea, use more bags :P ), but seriously, the whole point of a 'bag for life' is that if it busts they give you a replacement anyway :)
#6
supermarkets should replace your bag for life if it's broken, that's why they call it bag for life cos you can always have it replaced once it's broken...just confirm this with Asda but that's how it should be ;o)

Las time my local Asda ran out of the normal bags they gave away the bags for life for free. Got a few that day and will pop down tomorrow to see if I can get some more!

Pilsworth been doing this for the last few weeks
#9
Morrisons have been doing it too.
#10
went shopping in asda today no free bags : (
also shouldn't this be in freebies??
#11
Yes no wonder they are all doing it, I have often said how embarassing it must be when for instance you go to M & S and use Tesco etc bags, they obviously want people to come out of their shops with their bags!!!
#12
It will be intresting what happens with Sommerfeild bags for life now the co op own them

I do it all the time (re-use asda bags in tesco vice versa) - never once had a look or comment. Actually most staff start discussing how bad it is that all the meat products/grapes etc come in these plastic containers that can't be recycled by your local councils.

You really shouldn't get embarrassed over re-using a plastic bag! I actually find taking a couple boxes far easier though.

I did get refused entry to McDonalds in Glasgow on a Sat night because I was carrying a KFC bag, and my girlfriend wanted a Big Mac - I thought it was ridiculous (bouncer type on door!) / and summed up my complete distaste for these multinationals and their stupid little rules.

I personally don't like the plastic bag for life schemes , as the vast majority - I'm sure - get thrown out after one use, now if they gave away a cloth bag, made proper areas to allow you box things properly - I might start to believe in their green credentials - regarding Tesco, most of it is 'damage limitation' to their brand, rather than any real desire - personally I don't think they give a 's***', if you can wrap something up in three layers of plastic to increase the shelf life , and therefore increase profit - this wins everytime in their book.

If they dont give me free bags I just walk away and tell them I will go somewhere else that does give me free bags. I have done it before and left a whole load of shopping on the counter. It is ridiculos they expect customers to pay for them anyway. I never take my old bags with me as I point blank refuse to do so when I spend as much at the supermarkert in the first place. This recycling is a whole lot of rubbish and I for one do not entertain it. I use one bin out of the 4 wheelie bins I have got and put ALL my rubbish in the one bin. It is a complete waste of time all this recycling and it wont make one bit of difference just because I dont recycle a few shopping bags.

I work for Asda on checkouts. Bag For Life does exactly what is says on the tin (or bag!). If there's a hole in it or it's damaged in anyway, just hand it over and we'll replace it for free.

Good times!

:)

Is it too difficult to take your own bags? That's what people did not so many years ago before the age of the supermarket. You can't get any free bags in French supermarkets but the bags you buy there last forever. Sainsbury's have started doing a bag using the same construction and that will go in to Tesco M&S and wherever without any problems as are they going to say no when they don't pay us to advertise?

I'm hoping to live for longer than 2 weeks though.

Heaven forbid to think you could make a difference.

The jute bags they sell are brilliant - they are only £1 a pop and really will last forever. They are much easier to pack shopping in too.

Ashton branch seem to take delight in telling you that they no longer supply you with a free bag, I always try to take a competitors bag on the now very rare occasion I shop there, Morrisons bags are much stronger anyway:thumbsup:

Am I the only one able to lay my hands on literally dozens of previous weeks bags to take in with me?

Bought 2 yesterday - oh well, 10p down the drain!
#24
Bag for life? Damn, I'll need to buy my bin liners now :/

There's a hole in the cheque somewhere! I'm sure only public transport users will agree!

i prefer the larger 39p ones , i admit i use the carrier bags for bin bags

ASDA's green bags a pretty crap but they're much better than the 'free' ones. At least they'll replace them for 'free'.

Supermarkets need to calm down a bit with this bag thing from environMENTALISTs. Yes, we need to move away from millions of 'free' bags but it should be over years. I think ASDA especially has been upsetting their own staff with only putting one bag at a time on the checkout which slows things and annoys customers (that's the people who spend money in their shops in case the idiot management have forgotten). And anyway, why can't we have paper bags?

I have 3 or 4 of the green ones (normally 5p I think) and they're OK. I'll be replacing them with something longterm as soon as I see a plain black type which will last for a very long time and doesn't have "I'M A PSYCHO ENVIRONMENTALIST" and/or isn't covered in 'green' crap like flowers and love hearts.

:-D

hey ....are you me? i walked out of asda this week with about £80 worth of shopping left at the till,because they wanted me to pay for bags,and as for the 3 dustbins we now have ,even the bin men say the rubbish has to be sorted when they get back just in case you have mixed it up so whats the point..

I've got three of those sturdy Jute/Hessian/Whatever bags, plus a rather natty Polka Dot (Cath Kidson?) one. They're left in the car boot and I must admit after initial relectance I now like them when I do the weekly shop - throw them into the bottom of the trolley and it's much easier to pack them than flimsy plastic bags. Useful for trips/picnics et al as well.

But I must admit I only take them in when I think I'm doing a "proper shop" - if I'm just popping into the shop for a pint of milk, and come out with lots of Beer/Crisps/Chocolate then I think I'd get annoyed having to buy more bags (or abandon my trolley while I walk to the far end of the car park to get my bags)...
#31
Don't get me wrong, this is a hot offer. But aren't they only about 30p normally anyway :lol:
#32
Only idiots pay for bags that have the companies logo's on them - your paying for the free advertising.
Have the prices in the shops dropped after paying for the bags - no.

If they were really interested in the false 'global warming' they would have all the cardboard boxes used for the products at the tills - for free.

are you trying to get a response, that is an awful attitude, you can actually earn money using bags through green points, i have earnt 100's of green points which probably have equated to £20 in clubcard deals. it's not just the plastic bags but are you saying you don't recycle glass, cans and newspapers?

I agree with almost everthing you said. I have walked out of several shops when they tried to charge me for bags. Everbody I know who recycles their rubbish use either carrier bags or black bin bags to put their rubbish in before putting them into the bins provided so there is no reduction in the amount of bags used. Also we now have 10 vans for month coming round where before we have 4. What cost is that to the enviroment not only in fuel used but the carbon footprint of the production of the van themselves. All the bins we are supplied with are imported from abroad plus use a lot of oil to produce them, again at what cost. The easiest idea it to put all the rubbish in one bin and have it sorted at the recycling plant itself. This would save a huge amount of time, money and water, used to wash the tins and bottles before puting out for collection also used to wash the bins after use. Water also will soon will be on meter for everyone meaning we pay extra for the job of recycling.

The enviroment is an issue not to be taken lightly but it is being used as a way of the government to control peoples live also used as a way of making money.

They do, You just ask. I have had loads from Sainsburys, Asda etc but only paid for the original one.
#36
I refuse to shop at Asda now as they charge for the bags - I agree with recycling where it is made easy, but paying for a bag is just rude - I used the old bags for rubbish so I do recycle them.
#37
Hasn't the Government issued an ultimatum. Either reduce usage of bags or we end up getting taxed like they do in Eire.
#38
I am surprised nobody has said yet that they married one! :) (bag for life).

It's because of people like you I'm glad the shop I work at stopped charging for bags - the amount of people who feel they have a right to free bags just because they bought something. These are businesses, if they want to charge for bags they can - the logical thing to do would be factor in the cost of the bag to your shop, and decide if its still worth you shopping there, not taking some ridiculous moral outrage about them having the audacity to charge you for something.

And for the record, if 1 million people with 1 bin used that attitude, then that would be a huge volume of recycling going to landfill. The "it won't make a difference" attitude needs to stop. If you don't agree that recycling is important and isn't worth your time - say so. Don't make up excuses to get you out of it.

When I went to Asda (Cardiff Bay) a week ago they were giving these out for free. The SA told me that they are getting rid of the usual carrier bags and replacing them with these. They are giving them out free for the next week but after that they are charging 10p for every bag for life that you need.
