More 'save the planet' crap
Went into Sainsbury's today to buy some brussell sprouts amongst other things. Sainsbury's in their attempt to save the planet, have removed all the plastic bags. I ended up asking one of the staff where I was expected to put these things whilst walking around the store; in my pockets or perhaps down my socks? I was told that from now on, I have to bring my own bags for loose vegetables or I could use one of their reusable veg bags. 'Are they free?' I asked.... 'No, they are 30p each.'
So despite the fact that I go into their store almost everyday and pay them over the odds because they are closer than Tesco's, now they want to charge me 30p for a bag. So is that one bag or several bags? If I bought one bag and put in 3 sprouts, 1 carrot and five plums, would they have to separate them all at the check out?
To make matters worse, I then got held up at the checkout whilst someone argued about their Nectar vouchers - worth half a pence if they are lucky. With modern technology, why can't offers be added automatically when the items are scanned.
On the way out, I put my half pence vouchers in the bin provided. Guess what? It was full up with vouchers that no one wanted.
So if Sainsbury's is serious about saving the planet, what about stopping all those useless vouchers and saving some trees instead.
