New shopping bag laws have been put into effect in Wales as of the first of this month. It now costs 5p per plastic bag, or you can/should bring your own. The money goes to local charities and causes. I’ve heard a surprising number of people saying it’s a bad thing, but I completely disagree! I think it makes us stop mindlessly getting loads of bags, and instead take our own! It doesn’t put us out and the money is going to help, what’s the problem?
