UK – Published a new report on life cycle environmental impacts of carrier bags. / El Reino Unido publica un nuevo estudio sobre el ciclo de vida y el impacto ambiental de las bolsas de supermercado
In February 2011, the UK Environment Agency published a study on “Life Cycle Assessment of Supermarket Carrier Bags” that ompares the carbon footprint for carrier bags.
The report shows that commonly-used plastic 'bags for life', if used four or more times, will have a lower carbon footprint than single-use carrier bags.
