Default Shopping in Italy - No more Plastic Bags

As you or may not know, Italian shops are implementing a ban on plastic bags - hurrah!

You may want to know this in advance if you plan to go shopping in Italy. That is one country where I can shop until I drop.

Where?

Certain shops yes - but it is not statutory as it is in Italy.

Eire has a large tax, I think, on them.

A 33% tax reduced the usage of plastic bags by 90% in 3 months - good eh?

I agree with you though.
