Do you agree with Sainsbury’s decision to stop selling fireworks


25th October 2019

SAINSBURY’S will not be selling fireworks this year, to help protect pets and tackle anti-social behaviour.

The supermarket chain announced that fireworks will no longer be available to buy in any of its 2,300 stores. Glow sticks and light-up spinning wands will still be on shelves.

The news has delighted many animal charities, who say that the loud bangs and bright lights of fireworks can be very distressing for pets, such as dogs and cats. They can also cause upset for elderly or vulnerable people. Other big supermarkets, including Tesco and Asda, are expected to continue selling fireworks.

What do you think?

I think it's great as animals won't have anything to be afraid of.
Also it's good for the environment as people won't be throwing plastic wraps away.

I think that Sainsburys are right because it is unfair for some people as they might not like loud bangs and the same goes for pets.

Yes, I completely agree with them as many insects are killed and they get quite scared, so it's a win-win, better for our planet and for animals.

I definitely agree as fireworks can sometimes be dangerous and they are also quite loud so they usually wake up my siblings in the middle of the night!

The decision to stop selling fireworks is an amazing move and will stop pets being scared. It also means that there will be less plastic wrapping thrown away and less pollution from the smoke.

I say that it is good that Sainsburys stopped selling fireworks because it causes loud bangs, scares for animals and air pollution.

Yes, I think this change is great as animals and some elderly people could potentially be harmed with the noise, and it also releases smoke which is bad for the environment, animals and us.

I think it is ok because pets and older people may find it a bit scary

I think it’s good that Sainsbury’s won’t be selling fireworks because they scare pets and other wildlife with the big bangs and have sometimes proved to harm them.

Yes I agree. Imagine if you were a helpless animal who couldn’t communicate with humans and you were scared of fireworks. Everyone is scared of something and you wouldn’t want something you don’t like happen. Besides they will still sell glow sticks!

Just because some animals are being frightened doesn't mean that a whole chain of supermarkets needs to stop us having fun. There are things you can do to help your animals.

fox64 · 2 years ago

So I agree with Sainsburys

anju-fnews · 2 years ago

I mean fireworks come in plastic wraps and that's bad for the environment and fireworks make poor animals scared and that's why I agree with Sainsbury's

Good for the environment and good for pets two in one.

5honypony · 2 years ago

I agree all the way! Not only does it not scare pets, it also reduces air pollution

Yes, I think it will create a big impact but other stores still sell them- so i think it will make people think about the need of having them.

artymartin · 2 years ago

I agree with Sainsbury’s decision to stop selling fireworks this year but if fireworks were made so that they were quieter and less scary then no. But still we can still celebrate with other small fizzing and sparkly things as well (e.g: Sparklers).

I agree with Sainsbury's because fireworks are such a disgrace to buy and bang in the middle of the night when babies and elderly are trying to sleep. I do not support fireworks in any way at all.

i think i agree with sainsbury because fireworks could be dangerous and we could replace them with drones or something

flagfan · 2 years ago

I agree because I care about other animals and I myself am scared of fireworks.

chetan272 · 2 years ago

No fireworks:
kills insects, flies and ect..

bamboomilk · 2 years ago

It is good, it makes it safer for everyone too. I if they sell less, the less it will end up being in a little kids hand.

katkid10 · 1 year ago

I agree with Sainsbury's as loads of supermarkets sell fireworks any way.
