UK has carrier problem in the bag, why don’t we?
I think it’s high time that the UAE adopted a more stringent policy on the ridiculous over use of plastic bags, particularly in supermarkets which are by far the worst offender. The UK has published a statement to say it has all but obliterated the use of plastic bags, by 90% charging approx the equivalent of one dirham for each bag used and has managed to simply educate the public, offering reusable bags... etc. Yes we all know that paying for a bag wouldn’t be an issue for a lot of people .... But that’s not the point! And with the promotion of reusable ‘bags for life it’s so so easy to achieve. When I’m in the uk it’s habitual that I take my bags to use. I keep them in the car, even my hire car! It’s not rocket science. The trouble is here that the packers don’t understand the necessity to stop the use of bags and will wrap wrap and over wrap. Education education education .... Someone please get on board with this, please! Bag lady D Dubai
