A new trend: No Plastic Bag Day!

Recently, the Penang government has declared every Monday as a "No Plastic Bag Day" for the state beginning July 1. Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the ban by the state government on using plastic bags marked its serious commitment to achieving its goal of becoming a green state. He said that to encourage consumers to bring their own bags and reduce their dependency on the plastic bags, consumers would be charged 20 cents per bag on the "No Plastic Bag Day".

In Hong Kong, Every Day No Plastic Bag Day campaign has launched on March 3. Shoppers are asked to donate 50 Hong Kong cents (about 6 U.S. cents) for every plastic bag if they insist on using it. Participating stores include the city's three major supermarket chains Welcome, ParknShop and China Resources Vanguard, and pharmacy chains Watsons and Mannings.

In fact, a lot other organizations have launched similar campaign to save the Earth. E.g. USM.
