That's how many plastic bags were reused by the customers of the Prestwich branch of Tesco last week. Someone had hung a sign up telling us so. Every little helps, they couldn't help adding, without a hint of irony.
I know for a fact that seven of those bags were mine. That's 2.18%.
It seems to me that, at this rate, it's going to take an awful lot of time to save the planet.
Having said that, if and when we do finally save the planet, it seems only fair that 2.18% of it should be mine. That's 11,119,430 km2.
