Today I went shopping in Crawley and forgot to take a bag.
Fortunately I didn’t want anything large but when I bought a gift card in Next I expected to be given a paper bag to put it in – no!
When I bought some birthday cards in the Card Factory I expected to be given a paper bag to put them in, no.
I praise Primark for having the foresight to supply brown paper bags for a long time although not suitable for wet weather but I can’t believe that nobody has thought to supply paper bags which are recyclable if not for large items then at last for small items.
