DO you take your own bags with you when you go shopping? If you don’t, you will have to pay for plastic bags every time you go to the store.

This is because on June 1, 2008, China began a ban (禁令) on plastic bags. Supermarkets and stores could no longer provide free plastic bags.

Why is there such a ban? Because China uses lots of plastic bags –before the ban started in 2008, people in China used 3 billion plastic bags every day.

The result was a great waste of resources (资源) and heavy pollution.

In the past three years, the ban has worked well. According to the National Development and Reform Commission (国家发展和改革委员会), the amount of plastic bags used by supermarkets has fallen by about two-thirds. ?

Other countries have also found ways to deal with the problem. In San Francisco, US, each shopping bag costs 17 cents. Supermarkets can only provide customers with paper bags or cloth bags. In South Korea, if a shopper brings an old bag to a store, he or she can exchange (交换) it for a new one for free.

However, there are still difficulties banning the use of plastic bags completely in China. For example, plastic bags are still widely used in farmer’s markets.

“Now the task is to develop something light and safe to replace plastic bags,” said Dong Jinshi, an official with the International Food Packaging Association (国际食品包装协会). “Also, it’s important to educate people to use plastic bags as little as possible.”
