LONDON —
From today on, shoppers have to pay 5 p (8 cents)
Buy a plastic bag in large shops and supermarkets across the UK.
It takes more than 100 years for ordinary plastic shopping bags to be biodegradable, and its harm is well documented --
In 2002, Bangladesh became the first country in the world to ban the use of polyethylene shopping bags, after they were accused of blocking the drainage system and adding to the flood.
In 2007, the picturesque town of Modbury in southwest England became the first plastic town in Europe.
On 2006, residents and wildlife photographer Rebecca Hosking filmed endangered marine animals and birds wrapped in plastic bags in Hawaii.
After returning home, she showed her film to the merchants of Modbury who said they would stop supplying plastic bags to customers.
Their position was quickly captured here.
Reusable \"lifetime bags\" became de rigeur, with small charges for plastic bags introduced in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland from 2011 to 2014.
\"The more bags we take from the store, the more plastic we get into our environment, destroying our enjoyment of the countryside, destroying our wildlife and marine environment, stewart, UK environment secretary, said.
Retailers with 250 or more employees will have to charge for luggage, which small businesses can do if they want.
Tesco, the supermarket giant, said it aims to achieve zero-carbon business by 2050 and redesign its orders.
Use the bag to become stronger so that fewer bags are needed.
Rebecca Shelley said: \"It is very important that we do our part for the environment and we are very proud of the work we do in this field, group communications director, especially in reducing waste.
The British government says there are more than seven takeaways from major British supermarkets.
There were 6 billion plastic bags last year.
Equivalent to 61,000 tons, the cost is expected to increase to $1.
1 billion for good business and save $91 million in waste cleaning costs over the next 10 years.
The government expects that the use of plastic bags in supermarkets will be reduced by 80% and high street stores will be reduced by 50% due to this cost.
However, not everyone is a fan of the plan.
Alice Ellison of the British Retail Alliance told the BBC that the charge sent a \"confusing, complicated message\" to customers, and that all stores in the UK should charge for all types of disposable bags, like the rest of the UK.
Rubber bags on Twitter became a hot topic on Monday.
