The supermarket chain Globus, the only big retailer still offering plastic bags free of charge, has announced a change of policy as of next year. A company spokesperson for Globus said shoppers in the Czech Republic had become more environmentally conscious and now was a good time to abandon the practice. The chain is currently handing out approximately 40 million plastic bags a year. Hypermarkets such as Tesco and Albert, which started charging for plastic bags a few years ago, say the demand for disposable bags dropped by a half as a result.
