A HEROIC man has eschewed using a plastic bag during a trip to the supermarket and carried the loose items directly to the boot of his huge car.
Julian Cook valiantly rejected the offer of the planet-destroying sack and used his own hands to transport his selection of wines, cheeses and avocados flown in from Peru to his SUV.
Cook said: “I usually just buy four new bags for life every time but I felt inspired by COP 26 to make my own sacrifice to save the planet and took the daunting decision to go completely bagless.
“I won’t lie, it wasn’t easy. Particularly when I got the Range Rover and had to get the car keys out of my pocket with both hands full of shopping. Thank God I parked in a parent and child space so I didn’t have to walk very far.
“It felt really good to know I’d made a difference. In fact, I was still beaming fifteen minutes later when I pulled over to fill up with diesel.
“I’m booking my family of four flights to Antigua today and I’m so pleased I’ve already offset any climate damage that might do.”
