Interesting Fact - Shopping

Since introducing the 5p levy on plastic bags in England, 520 million of them have been pinched from shops.

(When I first heard this, I thought "How?", but seemingly it's at the self service checkout.  When people are asked if they have brought their own bag 50% say, "Yes", even when they haven't.

At £26,000,000 that's the biggest heist, ever.)
