Less plastic bags on seabed, now let’s get serious on coffee cups

by Steve Beasant on 5 April, 2018

Commenting on reports that the number of plastic bags found on the seabed has fallen following the introduction of a charge for carrier bags, Liberal Democrat Environment spokesperson Tim Farron said:

“The 5p charge on carrier bags was introduced by Liberal Democrats in government in the face of Conservative opposition.

“It is the right policy to help protect our environment but the government must now go further and┬áback the Liberal Democrat call to introduce a charge on disposable coffee cups.”
