Keep Safe Environment-Banning Plastic Bags

Keep Safe Environment-Banning Plastic Bags

America's leading state in banning plastic bags
America is the first country in the world to introduce the ban. This will mean that approximately 400 million less plastic bags will be used in India each year.

Retailers have welcomed the ban, and have introduced green bags, offering customers environmentally friendly promotional bags that they can re-use when shopping. Many of them have branded the environs bags and have seen the plastic bag ban as a chance to promote their business through promotional bags.

Countries around the world that are doing their part
Many countries around the world are doing their part for the environment by introducing a plastic bag ban. A few examples include:

San Francisco was the first city in America that placed a full ban on plastic bags from major supermarkets and pharmacies. Soon after California made it compulsory for large supermarkets to recycle plastic bags. China has banned all shops from handing out plastic bags for free and it has outlawed the production of ultra-thin carry bags. By this year Italy has promised to ban plastic bags and has had a levy placed on the use of plastic bags for a decade. Supermarkets in Switzerland are required to charge for plastic bags.Modbury in Devon was the first town in Britain to ban plastic bags in 2007.
If countries across the globe introduce a ban of plastic bags, we can significantly reduce the impact they have on the environment. In the coming years let's hope other countries will follow the examples of the ones listed above and join this important cause.
