BERTRANGE — For the 445th time in a row, a shopper from Luxembourg has forgotten to bring her eco-sac from home.
On Monday, Ana Cisneros-Horta, who has lived and worked in Luxembourg since 2010, stopped at a Delhaize supermarket on her way home from work.
After setting her items on the cashier’s conveyor belt, she quietly cursed in her native language upon realizing she’d failed to remember to bring the reusable bag.
Saying “excusez-moi” to the shopper behind her, Cisneros added a new 70-cent eco-sac to her purchases.
Sources close to Cisneros say that although the 36-year-old insurance company employee believes she’s ecologically minded and recycles as much as possible, she has never actually remembered to re-use an eco-sac.
“Once [an eco-sac] enters our home, it’s destined to remain there forever,” claimed the source.
After Cisneros unpacks supermarket items, the source reports, she neatly folds the newest eco-sac and slides it into a large box that now contains between 600 to 700 of the study plastic containers.
