So I drafted this post a week ago and I was waiting for a response from an email I sent to help finish it, but that response hasn’t appeared, so here’s the post anyway!
Anyway, this plastic bag post was prompted by a visit to a Sportdirect shop (not somewhere I normally visit). Upon buying a few items, my friend was given a plastic bag. Even though he said he didn’t need it, the shop assistant insisted that it was compulsory to have a bag with a purchase and gave him one anyway. As you can imagine, I was incredibly annoyed by this – how can we be more environmentally friendly if large companies are preventing us from doing so?!
I googled their policy when I got back home, and discovered online complaints from others about the same problem – one even dating back to 2008! I can’t believe they have managed to keep this policy going for so long! (I found nothing about it mentioned on their website despite a long search). So I emailed Sportsdirect about this, asking them to explain their policy in relation to the environment, and I still haven’t heard back!
Have you experienced something similar?
