I spoke with the Iain Fergusson from the Co-op today and he tells me that after Banchory Co-op has its re-fit [in June I believe] from then on plastic bags will be kept under the counter – customers with just a couple of items will be expected to carry them in their arms;  customers with more shopping will be asked if they have their own bags;  if not, they will be offered a cotton bag for 99p;  if they refuse that, they can buy a ‘home compostable’ bag for 6p;  if all that fails, they can demand a plastic bag……. but they are hoping that shoppers will have given-in by then.

This should be a great example to the other shops in Banchory.  Well done, Co-op.
