Start Charging for Plastic Bags … or else

28 02 2008

Update on Bags.

Gordon Brown today orders supermarkets to stop giving away carrier bags – or be forced to do so.

The Prime Minister is lending his voice to the Daily Mail’s campaign against the blight of “plastic poison”.

Under an initiative to be introduced next month, stores will be given a year to match Marks & Spencer’s pledge to slash the use of environmentally- damaging throwaway bags, by charging customers 5p for each one. Retailers who do not do so voluntarily will be required to impose a levy of at least 5p.

Right on, Gordy! You might stay in office now, if I was the only one voting.
Plastic Bags and waste are an obvious problem in our society and we should reduce
our waste.
