Marks and Spencers Plastic Bags

Some good news! UK supermarket chain will soon introduce a 5 pence levy for plastic bags. Some 13 billion bags are given out in the UK every year alone, leading to landfill, harm to sealife, and birdlife, and not to mention the oil that is used producing the bags. 90% of debris in oceans is plastic. The 5p fee for the bag will go towards charity.

This has sparked some debate in Britain, but at least people find it important enough to talk about. Marks and Spencers will also increase the amount of recyled plastic in their bags from 20 to 100%. Whilst I think we can easily get along without plastic bags at all, this is at least a step in the right direction.
