As above, they will not have any bags in store from this date.

Make sure you stock up on reuseable bags ;-)

this story seems to be spreading like wildfire-I work for asda and it is absolutely not true!

we were clearly told at decembers meeting that the bag would not be phased out in 2009 although customers are to be increasingly encouraged to use reusable bags over the coming year but this story is utter nonsense.

Why would they keep saying it over and over on the tannoy then ??????

Yeah, cobblers. They tried it in our Asda last year (as from such date no more disposable bags), couldn't have gone to well as we are back on the plastic now. Lasted about a month.

Their bags for life are awful anyway, too flimsy and too deep and not wide enough. Morrision on the other hand.....heaven :w00t:

Probably a doomed, ill thought out trial like our one.
#11
I hope they take the price of the bags off the items in store then. I also hope they realise sales will suffer as anyone that has no transport will be put off from taking bags to store as it's too much faff oh but the sales of recyclable ones will go up
#12
Look, relax people, don't shoot the messenger.

I'm just telling you what they were saying in my local store.

Jeesh

the greeters(tannoy announcers) have been told to push the reusable bags as part of the encouragement process-maybe the greeter in your store got a little overenthusiaastic or has misunderstood what has to be said but I can assure you we are not removing bags from checkouts-can you imagine how much money we would lose with such a move?

if you forget your reusable bags are we gonna insist you carry it home or buy bags for life-would be commercial suicide.
banned#14
i think they should do drive through.. pick what you want then they load it in the boot of your car and save on bags

They completely removed them in our Asda, you had to buy/reuse the bags for life.....for a while anyway.

yes they did trial this in 30 stores I believe-customer feedback was so negative they took fright and backed off.
banned#18
Nah, my ex still works there.
#19
They tried this last year and got one very angry customer, me!! I threatened to leave my very full trolley at the till as I am not a regular and they had no notices, the other shoppers followed suit as they knew nothing, it was soon dropped.
banned#20
Great! What next?

"We're not using packaging for any of our products so we can SAVE THE WORLD! - Customers, be quick because the soup is gushing down aisle 14 and there's a pile up of baked beans on aisle 6"

and people who lives three flights up.....?

bad idea.


If this is true, I won't be shopping at Asda anymore.

This campaign against free carrier bags is getting out of order, apparently you have to "ask" for them in my local co-op now, there aren't any left out to use.

So yesterday, I let them scan all my shopping through, paid, THEN packed all my stuff when they finally gave in and decided to offer some. The queue was massive lol.

There are so many things in this world that are far worse for the planet, yet we're made to feel like earth-killers simply becasuse we need bags to put our shopping in. :x

I don't agree whilst not seen as a massive threat....

Each year, an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide. That comes out to over one million per minute. Billions end up as litter each year.

I don't think we should ban them just use them more wisely instead of 20 bags each time you shop.

taking a shopping bag/s with you, when you go shopping is no big deal, its usually the laziest people that don't care and will try and make a issue out of it, lol "the look at me i'm making a point because i'm lazy"...........saga

I go shopping straight after work, major supermarkets are in between my work and my house. I'm not taking a load of plastic bags to work, and if I were to drive home, collect bags, then back out to go shopping the additional 15-20 miles driven would be FAR worse environmentally than 8-10 bags.

This is the idiocy of the plastic bag nazis :roll:

aaah poor you, its a hard life, unable to put some bags in your car, frightened you might get the mickey taken out of you for taking some bags to work with you...
#29
The government is placing a levy on the use of carrier bags with supermarkets, anything up to 25p per bag, coming into force within the next 12 months. ( scotland anyway)

So that is why the bags are beig phased out, as if there is not a 50% reduction, then goverment will use ludicrous charging levels, meaning the costs to us all will rise on an average shopping.

Hope that clears it up.

I actually use public transport to get to/from work.

I'll start taking the car JUST to please you. 40 miles driven everytime I do shopping for the sake of 10 plastic bags is a bit ridiculous, no?

environmentalists indeed :roll:
#31
I can't believe its too much of an inconvenience for anyone to take a few bags with them to work if they intend to go shopping afterwards.

Laziness:thumbsup:

good another reason not to go to Asda WHOOPEE :-D

lol, then how would you drive home from work??????? clarity my dear boy

like I said its just pure lazy, you don't need to do it ALL the time but to take a few bags on your person sometimes isn't that difficult and to make that out its such a hardship is silly, are you that much of a mouse? Anywho you will be forced to do it eventually, so gutted

all the supermarkets will be doing this haha

Yeah, walking into a meeting with your pockets stuffed with plastic bags is SO cool.

I'll start wearing a suit made of hemp and smoking some wacky as well eh? Maybe only wash once a month as well, after all it's for the environment eh? :thumbsup:

Think about it, If I take the car, no need for public transport for ANY of the legs of my journey.

Common sense, little one :thumbsup:

So you don't take any sort of bag with you to work ordinarily and nor can you take bags to work and leave them in your desk or wherever,as if,excuses excuses .

You obviously have difficulty grasping the logic, I can't be bothered explaining it in a way in which you can understand.

Oh, and I don't need to wish to be cool. If you do, that's your problem. :thumbsup:

for the record, ha ha ha.
