Your views on plastic bag charge

ITV News Facebook fans have been reacting to the proposed introduction of a 5p charge for plastic bags at supermarkets in England.

Here are a few of the comments:

  • Jay Lynch Long overdue. Just buy reusable bags, people. Not only will you save money, but you'll also help the environment.
  • Michelle Griffiths This is absolutely pathetic. The standard bags don't last 5 minutes, don't you think we all spend enough on a standard food shop?
  • Gilli Jones I live in Wales and we've been doing this for some time now. At first it was annoying, but it makes you remember to take your shopping bags.
