Have just had a long talk with a friend who is also a keen gardener and cares about these things and we came to the conclusion that;
plastic bags in supermarkets should cost 50p
Items like cheese should only be wrapped in greaseproof paper, not cling film
meat should be wrapped in something like cellulose(?) or grease proof (I think cellulose - I may have the word wrong - is made from trees)
therefore should be bio-degradable?
In France, I believe they have banned plastic bags or made them v. expensive, also Wales. We wish our government would do the same.
