Sainsburys brand new bag


Good news from Sainsburys after the debacle of the report on how not so green supermarkets are. They're replacing their old white bags with satsuma-coloured ones which are made of 33% recycled material. The changeover will be complete by next February - it takes a long time to replace 1.7 billion shopping bags. This, on top of their 500 new products with compostable packaging, should bump them quite a few rungs up the ethical ladder.
