From October 2015 shoppers will have to pay a 5p charge on single use bags

Members who received CPRE national Campaign Newsletter for 22 July were urged to Sign the Pledge to stop using single use bags right now, by taking their own re-useable bags every time they shop. Did you sign the pledge? One member did - and went a bit further. Shopping in Boots she was offered a bag and told them of the pledge. Another day she was in her independent butcher's shop and told him; as a small retailer he will not be covered the legislation, nevertheless he supported it and had already ordered durable shopping bags.
