All Stores Will Charge for Plastic Shopping Bags
Some stores already charge for “regi” bags, meaning plastic shopping bags. Starting this July 1, every store will do this.
Please use this as an opportunity to reconsider your personal lifestyle, and do what you can to reduce the use of plastic and other throwaway bags, such as by carrying your own shopping bag.
For more information, please visit the website of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
