Charge on plastic carry bags impact retail usage in India

04-Aug-11
The Ministry of Environment and Forests’ Plastic Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2011, notification dated February 4 states that no carry bags shall be made available free of cost by retailers to customers. As a result retailers have started charging for plastics carry bags. The charge varies from Re 1 to Rs 7 per bag. This has resulted in an initial drop of 30% in plastics bag consumption by retailers, since the first week of July, because of the introduction of the pricing policy.
