Cash incentives used in anti-plastic bag week

A week long anti-plastic bag campaign encouraging shoppers to stop using plastic bags will launch in North Fulham on April 14 2008.

During the campaign, which runs until April 26, certain local shops will offer customers a £1 discount on what they buy if they reuse the Plastic Bags are Rubbish! campaign cotton bag.

Each time the cotton bag is reused customers will be given a stamp and when they have collected five they will be given the discount. Cotton bags and vouchers will be distributed at a stall in the North End Road Market from April 14 to 19.

North Fulham New Deal for Communities is leading the project to raise awareness of the need to reduce reliance on plastic bags. More than 20 shops including coffee shops, restaurants and supermarkets have given their support to the project.

NDC North Fulham manager Jo Higgs said: "The campaign is a great way to engage people in making small changes in their lifestyle and habits that can make a big impact on the environment.
