It is becoming like a trend, more veggies and plastic ban, taxes on the use of plastic products … Etc

Now, it is Sainsbury’s turn to introduce their new policy concerning the use of plastic in its stores. As a trial, the chain in Oxfordshire and Lincoln stores is giving its customers two choices, either they bring their own containers or they pay 30p for a reusable bag made from recyclable materials.

The chain is very optimistic about the action and expecting the elimination of the use of plastic in its stores by September.

In case this trial gives positive results the chain is expected to apply the initiative on its other stores around the kingdom.
