I am aware of the need to reduce plastic waste, but I am one of the many in Singapore who depend on plastic bags for waste disposal.
Charging 20 cents for the use of plastic bags will inevitably add to the already high cost of living here, especially burdening lower-income families.
I notice that RedMart uses biodegradable plastic bags for grocery delivery. I have used these to bag my rubbish too.
Instead of charging customers for using their plastic bags, perhaps FairPrice could consider replacing them with biodegradable bags in the fight against plastic waste.
