I share the concern of the threat to wildlife from plastic bags, especially sea life: but how much comes from our exported rubbish? I also support the proposed 5p tax on bags (if used for the purpose intended) but that’s just what it is - a tax. Wouldn’t a law making all carrier bags biodegradable be a better thing? I am sure many use old carriers to dispose of kitchen waste (re-cycling!); the alternative is decaying food lining the insides of plastic wheelie bins!: A bigger health hazard? You would think more of politicians if they dared to take on the big Internationals and outlaw all thick plastic food containers.
