    Iceland said yesterday that they will stop usung plastic packaging on their own brand products within 5 years.

    And banning plastic bags completely won't solve the problem, whereas charging 5 to15 cents for them will deter people from buying them.

    Yes of course, brilliant solution!

    They are talking about a tax on every bit of plastic here. even sticky tape .

    Also I would like to know since when have the people in the EU been able to do any sort of maths

    It looked tiny compared to the packaging....
    The problem of course with something like razors is hygiene and of course safety. Nobody would buy them if they thought somebody might have interfered with them and then again if they could easily be removed from the packaging they'd get nicked all the time. In many stores they have security labels either inside or outside the pack.

    I find that the thicker bag-for-life style carriers are better value for money than the thin 5p ones so always get them instead now.

    They are stronger and bigger and include eye catching printed designs that the cheap bags lack.
