Which carrier bag?

We were asked to conduct a literature review of previous studies into the environmental impacts of carrier bags in order to identify which, were environmentally preferable to single use plastic bags


Greener upon Thames, a community-driven campaign to reduce plastic bag use, were seeking the London 2012 Olympic Board to commit to a ban on single use plastic carrier bags at the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games.

They were concerned at the growing environmental damage caused by single use plastic bags and believe a plastic-bag-free London 2012 would be practical to implement and would act as a powerful symbol to the world that London 2012 is the most sustainable Olympics and Paralympics to date.
