What used to be given away freely is now something you gotta pay for. Starting this May in the UK, Marks and Spencer will be charging people 5p for each plastic bag they use, hoping to encourage more people to bring their own bags.
Not all the customers are happy, though. Some think they’re simply getting ripped off and this is a way for M&S; to make even more money. All I have to say is, if you don’t want M&S; to get your 5p, then just bring your own bags, plain and simple. You’ll be sparing your pockets AND saving the planet at the same time.
