Ban plastic shopping bags

If China can do it....

China's rapid development has triggered concerns over pollution. The Chinese government says it is banning shops from handing out free plastic bags from June 2008, in a bid to curb pollution.

Production of ultra-thin plastic bags will also be banned, the State Council said in a statement.

Use Baskets or Reusable Cloth Bags for Shopping

Instead, people will be encouraged to use baskets or reusable cloth bags for their shopping, the council said.

The move comes amid growing concern about pollution and environmental degradation in China.

China was using huge quantities of plastic bags each year, the State Council, China's cabinet, said in its directive, posted on the main government website.

"Plastic shopping bags, due to reasons such as excessive use and inefficient recycling, have caused serious energy and resources waste and environment pollution," it said.

Of particular concern were cheap, flimsy bags that many shopkeepers routinely handed out to customers.
