Planned solution to this problem not yet ‘in the bag’

Plans to reduce the number of plastic bags in Europe came under fire as local & regional authorities criticised the proposals as lacking ambition.  With nearly 100bn plastic bags used each year, members of the EU’s Committee of the Regions approved a report setting out far tougher proposals than those laid out by the EC.  The Committee calls for:

* an outright ban of free plastic bags by 2020

* mandatory EU targets to reduce the number of single-use plastic bags for all member states

* obligatory charges for all carrier bags
