Poundland 'gift of nothing' sparks eco-rage
Discount retailer Poundland has caused controversy with its latest Valentine's Day gift, a heart-shaped package with nothing in it. The Gift of Nothing, naturally priced at £1, is intended as "a bit of fun", says the retailer. Friends of the Earth and other campaign groups have complained that whatever Poundland was thinking about, it certainly wasn't the environment. Poundland defended the product, saying; "Our customers love it, as do loads of others online. They all know it's a bit of fun and we understand that's still allowed in moderation." One user, Kim Patterson, tweeted: "To all the ladies out there please don't tell your other halfs you want nothing for Valentine's Day cos courtesy of Poundland this might just be what you get."
