Obviously I mean…slash the use of plastic bags! Oh come on, what would be the point of just slashing them, after all, my groceries would fall out the bottom!
Every year each EU citizen uses, on average, 200 bags with 8billion of them ending up in seas and rivers. Shoppers across Europe may soon have to pay £0.5 pence for plastic bags under planned EU laws designed to reduce litter. Euro MPs voted in favour of strict targets that would force each country to halve its use of the lightweight disposable bags by 2017 and to cut it by 80 per cent by 2019. Oh well, the cost of auto erotic asphyxiation is bound to go up!
