Anyone smart will have stocked up on free plastic bags in anticipation of this 5p charge. I myself have many plastic bags to choose from.
I have nothing important to say

While I'm a little iffy on SUPERMARKETS getting the money for it, I'm glad some curbing of use of plastic bags might take place. People are offensively wasteful with the things and treat them as though they can be thrown on a compost heap after one use.

We've had this in Scotland for a while now. It's really, really not a big deal. Five fuckin' pence - fuck-a-doodle-doo.

About time we introduced it, the amount of carrier bag tumbleweeds around was pretty disgraceful

5p tho, five whole pennies, is it really that much of an inconvenience?

That, and I have at least half a dozen in the car.

Not much help if I've been on the bus, but still.

Gotta get some of those nicer cloth grocery bags (idk what they're called) and keep them in your car for whenever you need to shop.

We have some stores around here that don't even have bags. You either bring your own or just load everything into your car individually.

didn't realise the supermarkets were gettin it DAMN. i work in tesco and it has made a big difference. it's stupid but most people would rather drop their shopping everywhere than pay 5 fucking pence for a bag. plenty of smart people remembered to bring their bags for life as well.

How many bags would you need to use for that to be meaningfully expensive? How much stuff would you have to buy to fill up all those bags?

We've had it in Scotland for quite a while, it's going to be funny when I come home from uni at Christmas and all my mates start bitching about it even though they're at rah unis like Durham and Exeter and therefore 5p makes no difference to their lives at all.

it doesn't apply if you buy items in a train station, although I've never seen a tesco in a train station.

however, it is worth noting that the supermarkets aren't getting any money for it. it's all, minus vat and production cost, going to charity

just get a bunch of the larger and more durable bags.

I actually used to bring my massive backpack and put all the heavy stuff in it. I weighed the backpack when it was full of the food I bought, and I could usually get about 25-35kg, depending on how bulky the food was

I think they straight up banned them altogether in L.A.

Where I live though walking the streets the real garbage is all the blunt wraps, condoms/condom wrappers, and fast food paraphernalia.

It was hard to get used to the idea of paying for plastic bags but my reusabe bags and cart are super cute. And it does limit how much I buy when I get groceries which is always a good thing.

I see all kinds of people using them where I live. I was apprehensive about it at first but I honestly can't carry anything heavy without wrecking my body (I bought a gallon of water and some other groceries after class a few days ago and could barely carry them home which was a 10 minute walk, and when I got home my shoulders were red and my wrists and knees hurt a lot) so idgaf what anyone thinks anymore. Same reason why I almost always use my backpack instead of my beautiful shoulder bags, and I can't remember the last time I wore heels.

Here's an idea, why not put a fucking sponsor on the bag, so the bags will be paid for by corporations that make goods that are sold at that or other stores.

The bags free, but it has an ad for a TV show on it, yippy.

Fucking english, learn capitalism for fucks sake.

And those cheap bastards will fucking thank king/candycrush for paying for their fucking plastic bag just because they slapped an ad on it.


Anyway I I rarely buy more than I can carry and in america you can wheel a cart to your car and just throw shit in it anyway.

It's not to do with covering the cost of the bags, it's to do with trying to stop people from using plastic non-reusable bags so they don't have more bags around to damage the environment and stuff

Plastic's made from polymers from plants, it's a renewable resource, we're not gonna run out bro.

But my serious answer is they still have plastic bags, they just cost 5p now, it's not doing anything for the enviroment. Also it's a non-issue for me like I said. Also unless you live somewhere like an apartment above ground floor, carrying groceries in a few at a time is also a nonissue.

there's literally no downside to this. every juristiction it's been introduced in has had a massive reduction in pollution, so I don't give a fuck if it means Tesco get a few extra mil a year

no, plastic itself is bad for the environment.

The Great Pacific garbage patch has one of the highest levels known of plastic particulate suspended in the upper water column. As a result, it is one of several oceanic regions where researchers have studied the effects and impact of plastic photodegradation in the neustonic layer of water. Unlike organic debris, which biodegrades, the photodegraded plastic disintegrates into ever smaller pieces while remaining a polymer. This process continues down to the molecular level. As the plastic flotsam photodegrades into smaller and smaller pieces, it concentrates in the upper water column. As it disintegrates, the plastic ultimately becomes small enough to be ingested by aquatic organisms that reside near the ocean's surface. In this way, plastic may become concentrated in neuston, thereby entering the food chain.
