Charg­ing for plas­tic bags is the only way to progress, says let­ter writer

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

“So how do you dis­cour­age the re­tailer from dis­tribut­ing plas­tics when you are ac­tu­ally en­cour­ag­ing him to pro­duce more by letting him charge a small fee for ev­ery plas­tic bag he dis­trib­utes? Who takes this money, how is it ac­counted for? I think of­fer­ing al­ter­na­tives is the best way to go, bring reusable bags and of­fer in­cen­tives to those who use them. Lets not hide be­hind "green ini­tia­tives" to fur­ther fleece cus­tomers.”

“It’s not just bags ev­ery­thing here is packed in plas­tic!”
