Lithuania: Stores no longer provide free disposable plastic bags

Lithuanian stores no longer have free disposable plastic bags, prompting buyers to consider changing their habits, DELFI reports. Customers seem to be not immediately willing to give up disposable bags and are willing to pay 1 cent for them. However, most buyers expressed their intention to change their habits and start using reusable bags. One shopper said that she was willing to pay for plastic bags if the store uses the proceeds for environmental causes. Another shopper doubted that the nominal fee for disposable bags would significantly alter people’s habits, suggesting that such bags should be banned completely instead.
