Blog: Shopping trolley etiquette
Catherine Sleep | 17 August 2004
Does it bug you to use a shopping trolley that contains the detritus left behind by the previous user? Till receipts, store fliers, sweet wrappers and the like often litter the bottom of shopping carts and many people don’t like it.
What do you do? Choose another trolley (cart to our US readers), use it regardless or somehow get rid of the litter? A professor emeritus at New York City’s Zichlin School of Business has turned his academic eye on the matter, and spent a significant amount of time researching what people do with the rubbish. He found that 69% of people dump it into other trolleys, simply shifting the problem to others rather than finding a bin. He reckons his analysis could “help in unfolding a better understanding of the make-up and operation of present-day society”. Hmm, maybe.
