Kirsty Warburton started this petition to Sainsbury's (Sainsbury's) and

We were told that we would have to start paying 5p per plastic bag as a deterrent for us to use plastic bags. That price is now up to 20p in Sainsbury’s. What is the money being spent on? People haven’t stopped needing shopping bags. Why has the money not been put into developing an alternative to plastic bags?

Compostable bags are available at the checkouts in Co-op. So why have the other supermarkets not done this? I think this is something that all shops should be doing. Not charging for bags. Because if you don’t have a bag with you, then 20p is not a deterrent. But to make it illegal for plastic bags to be produced when there are other options available will cause less damage to the planet. 

It takes hundreds of years for a plastic bag to degrade in a landfill site. The majority of the plastic that enters our oceans comes from the land. Plastic bags are killing marine animals. That quick trip to the shop without taking a reusable bag with you has an impact on the environment which could easily be avoided if supermarkets provided compostable bags instead of plastic bags.

Plastic straws are no longer given out in pubs, restaurants and cafes. The next step is for supermarkets to stop providing plastic bags.
