The guests Miss Caroline Mak (Chairman of Hong Kong retail Management Association) and Mr. Edwin Lau, MH (Director of friends of the Earth (HK)) would discuss this environmental issue including the preparation of Hong Kong plastic bags taxation, the attitude of people who use plastic bags and the education of environmental protection. In addition, the following questions will be discussed as well: Why does Hong Kong use more bags than other places? Have retailers seen a drop in business or customers going to store that do not need to follow the rule? What is the logic in that plastic bags without handles being accepted? Do we need to raise 50 cents to a dollar on the second phase of plastic bags tax?
Is the plastic bags tax working?
