Plastic bag charge to be introduced in England!

This is good news!

The Break the Bag Habit coalition, which launched its campaign in August 2012, pressured the government for the introduction of a bag charge in England, as it’s good news for the environment.

The director of Campaigns and Communications at Keep Britain Tidy said last month, “This is a brilliant and significant victory for the work of the Break the Bag Habit coalition, the campaign led by four leading environmental charities – Keep Britain Tidy, Campaign for the Protection of Rural England, Marine Conservation Society and Surfers Against Sewage. Proceeds from the charge, like in Wales where the measure already exists, are likely to be donated to environmental charities.”
