Ditch those plastic bags every day

Ditch those plastic bags every day - Plastic Bag


More than 2,000 stores are to implement a "no plastic bag" scheme seven days a week.



From March 3, the initiative - the brainchild of the Hong Kong Retail Management Association - will be extended to outlets across the territory, according to chairwoman Caroline Mak Sui-king.

The scheme is currently operated only by major supermarket chains - and on Tuesdays only.

Mak denied the association is seeking to pre-empt today's Legislative Council session on the long-awaited plastic bag levy.

Cashiers will ask shoppers if they require plastic bags, but they will still have the option of making a donation for them in the 18 major companies involved.
