Retailers employing more than 250 people must now charge 5p for single-use plastic carrier bags.  Just one more reason to take re-usable shopping bags or a supply of old carrier bags with you to the supermarket!

The first 10 local residents to email greenpledge@wandsworth.gov.uk with their request will receive a free cloth shopping bag.
