Did the weekly Sainsbury's shop today, came back home, and after putting the food away I had a look at the receipt. Looked at it for a moment, wondering why I only had the nectar card balance on it, before turning it over. Sainsbury's have started printing their receipts double-sided. That is a very neat way of halving the amount of paper that goes into receipts.

Sorry to take the wind out of ya sails Tom, but the Sainsbury's in Brighton has been doing it for months. Literally.

They still aren't doing it here in London though... Maybe they assume Londoners can afford to waste more paper somehow?

Probably some sort of phased rollout. They've just changed the chip'n'pin machines as well here.

Mmm, neat trick isn't it? I made a similar post on glasshalfempty a little while back, but of course, the network connection is down for migration to the new house, so I can't link to it... :'(
