Customers holding re-usable (L) and plastic shopping bags are seen outside a supermarket in Rome December 29, 2010. Italy, one of the top users of plastic shopping bags in Europe, is banning them starting Jan.1, with retailers warning of chaos and many stores braced for the switch. Italian critics say polyethylene bags use too much oil to produce, take forever to break down, clog drains and easily spread to become eyesores and environmental hazards. To match Reuters Life!

A shopper puts groceries he bought in his own bag after stores in China stopped giving free plastic bags at a supermarket in Beijing June 1, 2008. China is trying to kick a 3 billion-a-day plastic bag habit. The world's most populous nation on Sunday will join a growing list of countries, from Ireland to Bangladesh, that are aiming to change shoppers' habits when a ban on the production of plastic bags under 0.025 millimetres thick comes into force.

A shopper carrying shopping bags walks past retail stores in New York's Times Square November 23, 2007. Americans use 100 billion plastic shopping bags a year, according to Washington-based think tank Worldwatch Institute, or more than 330 a year for every person in the country. Most of them are thrown away. A handful of U.S. cities and states have made moves to cut that number and Whole Foods Market, a supermarket pitched at the organic and natural food shopper, on Tuesday said it would phase out plastic bags out by Earth Day on April 22. But critics say the United States is years behind countries in Europe, Asia and Africa. To match feature USA-ENVIRONMENT/PLASTICBAGS REUTERS/Brendan McDermid (UNITED STATES)
