Interviewed by Sky News today (May 21) about smaller shops in England now charging customers for single-use plastic bags, National President
Stuart Reddish said:
We’ve been pushing for this for the last six years and now we’ve finally got a level playing field.
A lot of smaller retailers do make a charge already, and that money goes into local charities.
It’s about being eco-friendly. We’ve seen how plastic can devastate the oceans, and cause massive problems for landfill. I just hope the customers understand why it’s necessary.
