    Default Anyone changed their supermarket shopping habits lately?

    I have.
    When Countdown stopped providing plastic bags, I started shopping at PaknSave.

    I've been using non throw-away bags for several years, now, so no change.

    Yep... moved to home delivery. Far easier and the timesaving more than justifies the $8 (I think) delivery fee.

    they recently moved to shipping goods in paper bags.

    Why are they not offering paper bags instore?

    They donít give you bags either and you have to pack your own. Canít see the advantage! Why donít you just take some bags with you and save a bit of plastic waste?

    Default Usual BS

    Isn't the 'single use' thing daft?!

    Kitchen Tidy liners; disposable gloves; rain hat; doggy-pooper-scooper; on and on . . .

    Even when I was not using the non-disposable, no grocery plastic bag was ever used only once in our house.

    The plastic packaging in the bag is far more than the bag itself, however any step towards reducing single use plastics in the world is very welcome.

    In my social set those who grumble about it tend to be older folks who will moan about anything. If change was bad we'd still be using leaded petrol.
