We have all, over the years, been subjected to various forms of sanctimonious hectoring by the supermarkets, with âright-onâ Waitrose leading the charge: buy yourself a âbag for lifeâ and donât use all these cheap, flimsy ones we have to pay for. Itâs better for the planet, donât you know?
And one by one, they all fell into line with this âpreserve the planet nonsenseâ. Even Asda are now offering a fetching range of bags for â¦ death?
Reusable shopping bags could threaten your health.
Scientists tested shoppersâ bags and found that half contained traces of E.coli â which can be fatal.
Many bags were also contaminated with salmonella.
Reusable bags must be washed regularly at a high temperature to kill bugs left by the packaging from raw meat, the US team said.
Levels of bacteria found could cause a âwide range of serious health problems and even deathâ, they warned.
I have often thought that âgreenâ activists are nothing more than people-hating harridans. Is this an unfortunate side-effect, or are they stepping up their game to achieve a world free of people?
