I like it when they ask you "would you like a bag"......."no, I'll carry a trolley load of shopping on top of my f**kin head"

great idea, but as pretty much all freebie carrier bags have holes in the bottom, you need to remember not to put any liquids in them....

handy for camping holidays i guess

Have shops stopped giving bags away? Here in Manchester, I've never has a situation where there's no bags to grab!

I agree about the colours, why not do them in more than pastel colours? STRANGE!!

White would of been a good choice of colour!

Wish they did them in baked bean & tea bag stain colour - would save having to keep cleaning it then!

to put a bag in a bin? Is this what it is? What the hell is the world coming to?!

Well people keep their bags in their pockets or hambags so you can't expect them to know that or just help by bringing bags yourself, :thumbsup:

I don't really get what this is doing? Is it just holding a bag? I wouldn't pay 50p for a bag holder yet alone £3.50.

totally agree.
These ppl arent doing it "for the planet". They just want to save money. How the hell are we supposed to take home shopping without a shopping bag. and no, im not bringing in my old ones ... got enough on my plate already let alone remembering to bring the fecking shopping bags.

your right, i wish many more people would see this, i hate when supermarkets advertise they are 'acting on co2' and all that other crap. sad as it sound iv done substantial research into the removal of free carrier bags for a project at university. and its all ******...

i quote Asda themselves... “There is no more environmentally-friendly option, including paper and degradable bags, than the conventional plastic carrier bag. A carrier bag tax will effectively drive people to more environmentally-damaging alternatives.”

and a little fact for ya

the Conservatives have released official figures which indicate that government departments and agencies have bought more than 1.2 million plastic bags branded with their logos over the last two years.

'Ben the bin'?

oh dear, what ever next... Leonard the letterbox? Wendy the washing basket? Tom the Tampon disposal!?

Sheesh..

Thats weird cos I have to always take bags out with me cos no fecker gives free ones out where I shop! Must be cos you're male & the checkout girls are erm girls lol

I fail to see how using less carrier bags can be anything but good for the environment (it may not be a big difference but every little helps).

They also aren't simply doing it to save money. With Tesco it is possible to earn 4p for every bag you reuse. A shop on the scale of Tesco must be buying their bags at under 1p per bag - certainly far less than 4p.

Surely Tammy would be better.... :whistling:

This is really bad for recycling, and if you put it in a kids bedroom then there would be a danger of suffocation.

But its a decent price so I'll vote lukewarm.

To be fair, if that were to happen its simply Darwin's Theory of Evolution coming into action ;-)

Why, you having trouble getting out?

You can't stack it. Major selling point, as I'm sure you'd have 17 of these and you'd be constantly wanting to stack/unstack them.

Our local Asda (Edinburgh, Chesser) is really discouraging customers from using plastic bags recently.

My other half - who normally does the shopping - has a load of the "bag for life" reuseable bags and uses them when possible. The other week, however, I went to Asda for the shopping for some reason and I forget to take the reuseable bags. Once I reached the checkout, I was asked if I needed any bags, I went through the motions of surveying all the shopping that was stacked along the conveyor belt and replied that I would. The checkout operator then tried to sell me the reuseable bags, which I refused, bearing in mind the ones that I had forgotten.

The checkout operator then grudgingly informed me that Asda was trying to discourage customers from using plastic bags and tossed three bags in my general direction, leaving me to pry them open. When the three bags were full and no more were forthcoming, I had to interupt her from scanning any more items and ask for more bags. They were, again, grudgingly thrown in my general direction.

I really was on the verge of telling her where to stuff the shopping and head off to Sainsburys - who don't seem to give anyone any plastic bag grief - but I'd already wasted half an hour going round the aisles and didn't relish the thought of wasting another half hour going round Sainsbury's.

I'm sorry, but what is this actually. Bags on the handles of the door, i dont do that?. Can someone please explain as i have no idea at all, to me it looks like a .....well, i dont know what it looks like :w00t:

If your window opens up to the street, it is easier and cheaper just to throw your rubbish out of it.
