If the government encourage the production of non plastic bags for distribution via supermarkets and ban the production of plastic bags this will stop their use. Charging a higher price for a plastic bag is NOT a long term solution. Replacement carrier bags have already been used in Kenya and several other countries and there has been a big improvement in landfill sites. It will also encourage companies to be more inventive designing other packaging.
