Plastic Bag Use Plummets

Following the introduction of the 5p charge in England last October the use of plastic bags has dropped by 85%. If the trend continues, over the full year there will be around 6 billion less plastic bags in circulation than there would have been had the levy not been brought in.

This trend follows the pattern seen in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland who all introduced the 5p charge earlier.

One of the best alternatives to the single use plastic bag is a sturdy jute bag which can last for years and at the end of its life will have minimal environmental impact.
