Not a rant, cos I'm glad about it, but going back to Tesco carrier bags: the Co-op is now charging for their bags, too.

Hope Sainsbury's follows suit next and that it encourages more people to recycle their old ones.

I dont see why a supermarket that is making millions in profit already needs to charge people for a bag to carry there purchases home. I like most people use my bags after for putting rubbish in, cos its cheaper then buying bin liners. To me its a way for these places to make more money. Like all this bloody global warming, carbon footprint crap people keep talking about, the weather is changing due to that big ball of gas in she sky.

How rock n roll, discussing the various plastic bag pricing strategies of supermarkets.

I was thinking more of the sun, not many zeppelins flying around these days.

Ah. Well they are at mine. And I live in a pretty poor area, so they must be rolling it out slowly, I guess.

I know what you're saying, but theoretically at least, charging should mean people use fewer bags and that more people will bring their own. So in the mid- to long run, the supermarkets won't actually be making any money on bags. I know lots of people use them as bin liners, but I'm not entirely sure how ecologically sound an idea that is.

But if less people are using the carrier bags, then it means people will buy more bin bags, which in the long run will mean more profits for the supermarkets surely in the long run, plus reduced costs of buying the bags. Then again maybe its just me not buying into all the bullshit the government wants us to beleive and can tax us more.

Oh, whichever way you cut it, we're gonna get screwed. There's no argument there!
