12/12/2016

A Year On From The Introduction Of The 5p Plastic Bag Charge In England, Has It Made Much Difference? Well, the amount of plastic bags handed out by supermarkets has decreased by more than 85 per cent for a start.More than £29 million has also been raised by the levy for charities and community groups. More than 9 out of ten people often or always carry their own bags, according to a study by Cardiff University, compared to seven out of 10 before the plastic bag charge.
