5p bag tax

The government are claiming that the number of bags used at major retailers had dropped drastically, but they forget that people used these bags to put their waste in.  I am now buying large black bags that cost me 5p a bag, rather than pay 5p for a super market bag.   This bag tax is supposed to reduce the number of bags going into land fill, which it won’t, now that people are buying larger black bags, that don’t de compost at all.

Regards

Tim
