UK - IKEA against plastic bags

On the 5th of June, IKEA UK will make a pledge to reduce plastic bag usage from 32 million per year to 12 million per year. We will achieve this by encouraging our customers to refrain from using plastic bags by charging 5p per bag. We will reduce the price of the Blue bag to 25p to encourage customers to switch to a re-useable bag. IKEA will not make any profits from this. The profits will be donated to local community forests.
