At least they have no artificial colors (only pigments from baby seal retinas).

I’ve seen too many beaches covered in small bits of plastic. What’s the point of global warming if you can’t enjoy a day at the beach?

You've always got a choice. A beach with  the 10p plastic bags and a beach with the 5p ones. Take the 10p beach. It’s the cheapest way of showing how rich and successful you are.

I was thinking of you poor people. We rich people have secret beaches that the riff-raff don't know about. Worst case is we just employ some flunky to clean the beach first.

They are not fast; you are slow, very slow.

That url "british supermarket bans ALL plastic.." links to a google.co.uk search for the search-term "drudge", apparently some sort of "right-wing news aggregation website".

Why?
