Price On Large Supermarket Plastic Bags Could Increase To 95c

A levy could be placed on large plastic bags sold by supermarkets tomorrow, which would increase the price to 95c.

Climate Action Minister Richard Bruton will bring a number of proposals to Cabinet tomorrow, concerning the reduction of the use of plastic, reports the Irish Independent.

If implemented, Ministers could sign-off on a 25c increase on large plastic bags.

Also, 3c increase could be introduced on the standard plastic bag levy, which would bring the price up to 25c.

The move is to reportedly to encourage grocery shoppers to use more 'bags for life'.
