FIVE bloody pence for taking your shopping home in a placcy bag?
It’s the price you have to pay if you forget your Bags for Life when you nip into the local supermarket, but with stats showing that it does have a positive impact on reducing the amount of bags that end up in landfills after use, it can only be a good thing.
The headlines were full of horror stories about hard-up customers going rogue and nicking baskets and trolleys to take their shopping home in.
However, savvy shoppers are channelling stylish grannies and investing in shopping trolleys to carry their bread and milk (ok, pizza and wine) on a Friday night.
Online retailer Sabichi has reported a 30% rise in sales, 23,000 of which were sold in the last six months.
First it was grey hair and purple rinses. Is this further evidence of the rise of granny-chic?
