Delighted to note that UK environmental blog Climate Change Corp picked up on my holiday rant about the Marks and Spencers 5p bag greenwash. The CCC piece was derived from a wee piece in Ethical Corporation Magazine.
Slightly unsettled to note, from the same piece, my back-of-the-envelope calculation of costs etc passing into the record, but never mind!
I do sincerely hope this is the start of a backlash against retailers such as M&S gouging customers for 'green' initiatives that are purely in the financial interest of... errr... the retailers.
You never know. But isn't it funny how a (marginal) Dubai blog can start a niggle at a UK retailer!!!!
The cost of this negative publicity so far? 5 pence sterling!!!
