Full Implementation of the Plastic Shopping Bag Charging (Exemption)

Kearen Pang: From April 1, 2015, Plastic Shopping Bag Charging will be fully implemented.
All plastic shopping bags will be charged at 50 cents each or more.
Exemptions will apply to certain plastic bags for protection of food hygiene.
For examples, plastic bags wrapping unpacked foodstuffs will not be charged.
The same will apply when the packaging is not airtight.
Plastic bags may also be provided for chilled or frozen foodstuffs free of charge.
Beyond these exemptions, follow the “Use Less, Waste Less” principle.
So always bring your own bag when you shop!
