Newsbagger650 MILLION FEWER BAGS HANDED OUT IN SCOTLAND

650 Million Fewer Bags Handed Out In Scotland

The levy on bags introduced in Scotland a year ago has prompted a whopping 90% reduction in plastic bag use, saving 4,000 tonnes of plastic each year and generating more than £6.7 million towards good causes. The environment secretary thanked the Scottish people for showing the rest of the UK they’re “serious about tackling litter, reducing waste and creating a cleaner, greener environment for everyone to enjoy.”

With Wales reporting a 71% reduction since the levy was introduced, England finally followed suit back in October 2015. The initial reports of plastic bag theft and fighting soon died down and shoppers across the whole UK are now buying stylish reusable bags that will eventually stem the flow of single use bags. The growing consumer interest to buy bags that represent their style is driving a new income stream for retailers; bags for life are certainly here to stay.

Bombings, cuts to pensions, refugees… but UK media lead with threat of #plasticbags “chaos”

Seriously though.

Wales have been doing it just fine for the last four years.

Northern Ireland since 2013.

Scotland appears to have managed it ok since October 2014.

So that just leaves England.

The last nation in the UK to step up to the plate, and it sends the media into absolute melt down with apparent “confusion over the ‘complicated’ plastic bags law”.
