NYC Whole Foods will give out [ three per customer ] Anya Hindmarch “I Am not a Plastic Bag”(s) on July 14th while they last (do recheck that date as I wasn’t really paying attention to the signs). These are the bags that made a hit in all the supermarkets around London this last March. A hit also on the grocery store lines which wrapped outside the grocery stores. See Treehugger for the wrap on it here.
The bags are made in China with cheap labour and are not organic as well as not being plastic.
Can’t wait to see how NYTimes PRs this one for them. Their last PR hit [A Long Line for a Shorter Wait at the Supermarket – New York Times] lasted about one week. I can vaguely remember last week how people were commenting
“what happened to the lines?”. Well yesterday, Saturday at 8pm lines were back to wrap and directors not sure of which lines you should go to. Oh well, thanks for the nice few days of change.
