It’s been a few years since the introduction of charging to get plastic bags in shops.
Feels like a long time ago that we were given ‘free’ bags whenever we wanted.
The BBC is reporting that the cost of plastic bags will rise to 10p from next April. And it’ll also apply to all shops, not just the big chains.
Probably a good thing, and another small change to get us to think more about reducing plastic usage.
Got me thinking though - how much would people be prepared to pay for a plastic bag at the shops? 20p? £1?
