We started charging 5p for Neal’s Yard Dairy carrier bags back in January 2018. We crossed our fingers and hoped that it would reduce our plastic bag use and raise money for a good cause. There was good evidence that the charge had led to impressive reductions at the big supermarkets, but little evidence of its success in smaller businesses, like ours, where the bag charge is not compulsory. We weren’t sure what to expect. Would it reduce bag use by 5% or 50%? Would we raise £500 or £5000? A year in, we crunched the numbers and felt pretty happy with the results.
