Wales was the first country in the UK to introduce a single use carrier bag (SUCB) charge in 2010. The aim behind the charge was to reduce consumption of SUCBs and the associated environmental impacts arising through production, use and disposal. Early evidence suggested this was working, but what are the current effects of the charge on the use of carrier bags in Wales by retailers and consumers? And are the efforts to reduce plastic SUCBs being undermined by significant increases in the number of plastic BfL being issued? The Welsh Government commissioned Winning Moves to provide insight into this. Download our case study to find out more.
