"Carrefour plastic bags: Green or Greed?"


Received by e-mail from our good friend Cap, to which we added the above movie: “Made an unplanned visit to Carrefour yesterday. As I didn’t have my Eco Bags with me, I purchased another one at 50 cents. After I’d paid at the till, I was horrified to see that their plastic bags were still there as usual! When one sees how they package their own products – endless cling-film, plastic, etc – I am inclined to believe that their recently introduced campaign and the mainly good publicity they have received as a result, is nothing more than a scam designed to increase profits. My shopping bill certainly came to an extra 50 cents yesterday and I tend to agree with the post on CostaBlogger.

What I want to know is – can you put the bags with the recyclable motif on them in the yellow bins? Can anyone advise?

The recyclable logo means that they are recyclable. If it’s plastic, and only plastic, they go in the yellow bins.

It’s not a scam, or so they say. They’re working their way through their remaining stock of plastic bags. Whatever their motivation, this is a good idea. Let’s give them the benefit of the doubt for now.
