Bags more pollution

Is the Marks and Spencer that has been widely praised for leading a revolution against plastic bags the same company proudly displaying "Collect By Car" signs outside its city centre shops?

It's funny the things that pass through your mind half-way through a half-marathon, but the route through Reading (yesterday) does pass a city centre M & S that proudly advertises its car-friendliness.

Forget public transport, drive your Hummer to the back door, throw your (bagless) groceries in the back and sleep with a clean conscience.

You may have the carbon footprint of a small country, but at least you haven't added to the world's supply of plastic bags.
