Shops could soon charge customers 10p for each carrier bag they use. A new scheme is likely to be tested in London before possibly being introduced throughout the rest of Britain. The proposals are aimed at reducing plastic waste produced by supermarkets. Personally I would not mind paying for bags when doing a shop. I do already reuse all of my bags, taking my own with me on most shopping trips and I wonder if more people would start to do this if they have to pay for a bag.
