Without law, St Denis has trouble banning plastic bags

Without law, St Denis has trouble banning plastic bags
 
Sarah Elzas

The French senate is debating a wide-reaching environmetal bill that would require a 50 per cent reduction of waste in landfills by 2025. The bill includes a ban on plastic bags by next year. A 2010 law introduced a tax on bags, but it was never applied. St. Denis has the Paris region’s biggest market, which is held three days a week. The city has been trying to impose a ban on bags at the market for years, but it has had trouble imposing it without a law.
