No more dithering on plastic ban, please

This has reference to your news item “Money is Saved, but traders still prefer plastic”, (Herald, 4  April). There should be no excuse whatsoever to delay the plastic ban any longer.

There are free alternatives to a plastic bag. Is it too much trouble to carry your own container from home for fish and meat? Some people tell me that they take a small bucket from home for their fish.  Almost every buyer has some kind of transport.  And even if they don’t, the cloth bags that they have to carry because of the ban on plastic will hold their container of fish or meat.  

The bag can be slung over their shoulders and leave their hands free. Most importantly their purchases will be intact - quite often plastic bags split and people reach home without their groceries!!
