Big drop in bag usage
CARRIER bag use in Wales has been cut by as much as 96 per cent in some retail sectors since the introduction of a 5p charge.
Environment Minister John Griffiths has said he can see no reason why the charge would not work elsewhere in the UK.
Mr Griffiths said: "I think the Welsh experience proves that if you want to effectively reduce carrier bag use, a charge really is the best way to go."
He said the efforts of retailers and shoppers had been key to the scheme's success, adding: "I can see no reason why the charge wouldn't work just as well in other parts of the UK."
