Stop selling plastic carrier bags for goods and instead, either give or sell paper based wrappings.
Why is this important?
I recently bought £90+ worth of clothing and the only wrapping on offer was a 5p plastic bag! I am happy to pay for paper, but surely we ought to be getting rid of plastic, not being trapped into buying yet more? The arguments about a 'bag for life' or reusable still do not take the plastic out of circulation. We need a national campaign. This is about non-food large stores, selling clothes, shoes etc. The food stores have sorted their packaging over the last few years, because they sell consumables
It is an environmental and social responsibility matter. We need to use our resources carefully ,so for me that means avoiding plastic whenever possible and instead using and re-using paper based wrappings and bags.
