Lidl Stops Selling Plastic Shopping Bags In Balearic Stores

Lidl has stopped selling plastic shopping bags at shops in the Balearic Islands and will withdraw them from all 550 stores in Spain before the end of the summer.    The company says the change will take around 100 million plastic bags out of circulation in Spain, which is enough to cover 2,500 football fields.  Customers will be able to buy re-usable raffia bags in the stores instead.
