New Plastic Bag Rules In Force From July 1st

Plastic bags will be banned in the Balearic Islands from 2021, but from July 1st this year  customers will have to pay for plastic bags they receive in all shops and supermarkets.      There are three categories of plastic bags; very light, light and heavy, and consumers will only be charged for the light ones which are the most common.   Between 5 million and 13 million tons of plastic ends up in the ocean every year and these new rules are designed to make people more aware of the environmental impact of plastic.
