dOU­BLING the cost of plas­tic bags from 5p to 10p (Mail) is no de­ter­rent. they should be banned.

I am con­cerned that su­per­mar­kets are pro­vid­ing them free in their hun­dreds of thou­sands to those who have a home de­liv­ery.

dur­ing lock­down, I had my weekly shop­ping de­liv­ered by tesco and re­ceived up to 15 bags ev­ery time, some­times they each con­tained just one item. I asked the drivers to take them back so they could be reused, but was told this is not al­lowed.

Home- de­liv­ered gro­ceries should be packed in pa­per bags or card­board boxes.

KEN PAR­SONS, Tewkes­bury, Glos. RaIs­ING the price of plas­tic bags to 10p will not make the slight­est bit of dif­fer­ence be­cause peo­ple will just pay it. the only way for­ward is to stop pro­vid­ing them. pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tions used their own shop­ping bags, so why can’t we do the same?

FREDA HUNT, Al­trin­cham, Gtr Manch­ester. CHaRG­ING 10p for a plas­tic bag from next april isn’t enough. It should be 50p and brought in now.
