UK company using handle-less plastic bags to avoid bag taxPosted on February 1, 2016 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
Supermarket giant Tesco has claimed the number of single-use bags used by customers at its stores in England has fallen by 78 percent since the 5p bag levy came into effect.
Customers shopping on Tesco.com have also dramatically reduced the number of bags they use, with the number of online shoppers selecting ‘bagless’ deliveries increasing by nearly 50 percent.
The drop in bag use by customers in store is almost 10 percent higher than Tesco predicted before the bag levy was introduced.
Way to go UK. Still it is amazing at the intent of the new law is completely disregarded by some companies who obviously could care less for the environment they live in. Shame.
