UK: 80% minder draagtassen in Schotland door heffing

18 mei 2015

Scotland’s Environment Secretary has announced that four retailers have donated more than £1 million to good causes as a result of the single-use carrier bag charge. The indicative figure has been revealed following retailer reports that single-use carrier bag usage has been reduced by more than 80% since the charge was introduced on October 20, 2014. Nationwide retailers that signed up to Zero Waste Scotland’s Carrier Bag Commitment – an agreement to disclose information on the charge, and donations made, to a central publicly available portal – are reporting that various charities have also benefited from funds raised by the charge (Nieuwsbericht Scottish Government, 17 april 2015).
