Waitrose in Abu Dhabi charging customers for single use bags
It's a small (well, minuscule, really) step but at least it's something, in a region that could do with a massive dose of single-use awareness: Waitrose in Abu Dhabi has started charging their customers 25 fils (6 euro cents) per bag for single use across five of their stores in the Capital. They have recently reported a 74 percent reduction in their single-use plastic bags. The charge is part of a three-month long trial, which ends in September 2018.
