What are they on about now? Everyone knows that some of the best insulating materials are natural fibres, such as wool, paper, flax, hemp, wood fibres!

Thank you for the article, it is a great pity he hasn't 'teamed up' with one of the larger supermarkets, although that would be seen as 'political' I suppose! Still from little acorns.......

For years it has been normal here in Germany to charge the customer for the plastic bags and to offer jute bags additionally, but at quite a high price - thus most people bring their own shopping bags with them to the shop. Plus we have shopping boxes in the car to load them from the shopping cart and to transport the purchases to the house. When I just spent two weeks in the Czech republic, I got enormous amounts of small plastic bags in every shop and had the feeling I was constantly filling the waste bin of our hotel room.

Whenever I go shopping, I have fabric bags with me and some small paper ones. I have done it for years, originally because I didn't see why I should advertise to the world what stores I had patronised! I normally have my groceries delivered and they know my preference not to use plastic bags.

Most of the major grocery stores here off the option of paper or plastic bags. I pick paper.

And people say the POW doesn't do anything useful. He was the first person of any note to advocate sustainability and eco-friendly practices. Better, he turned his own property into a working model taking a lot of adverse and insulting accusations in doing so. He remains my personal favourite Eco-Warrior.
