Conclusion

Tesco bags will help because when they end-up in landfills, filling up countryside eventually they will rot so it will not be filling up the countryside with lots of Tesco plastic bags and because of that more people might shop at Tesco. Air pollution Tesco's Lorries causes (Air pollution) all these fuels and all the cars that come cause fumes aswell which is led to air pollution. Solution Getting bigger Lorries so less number of Lorries are being used therefore it will decrease the number of Lorries which will mean less air is being polluted. Noise Pollution Tesco Lorries cause noise pollution. Because of the amount of Lorries being used so we need to use less Lorries to stop noise and air pollution. Solution Use less Lorries in Tesco Factory and at their stores by getting bigger Lorries to fit more food in then there would be fewer journeys. This would help the environment by not using a lot of Lorries which will mean they will not need more fuel which will not affect the environment hugely than before. Economic Issues Credit Crunch - Credit crunch is a term used to describe a sudden decrease in the general available of loans (or "credit"), or a sudden increase in the cost of getting loans from the banks. House Pricing - house price are falling because no -one is purchasing the houses at such high price because they can't afford it. This affects the housing market by if no-one is buying houses they won't be making profit. The solution is they are reducing house prices so more people will buy them. Inflation - petrol prices have gone up (because of oil price increase), bread, rice, milk etc. All this affect Tesco by regular middle- income people will not be able to afford shopping Tesco because of prices are increasing, credit crunch, decrease in loans being loaned out, therefore people will have less money and their will be a decrease to Tesco's profits leading them to having less money. ?? ?? ?? ??
