    Good. make them £1. A few 10p bags for a £30 supermarket shopping trip is irrelevant to many making bags for life disposable. I've got friends who now have as many of the 10p bags as they had free ones. They throw bags full of 10p bags in the bin to make space in their cupboards.
    If you give reusable bags value by charging more for them they will be valued.

    Disagree, I carry a backpack with me at all times with a large bag for shopping inside, but sometimes I may forget or have more shopping than expected, or whatever and may not realise until I paid for shopping, so I would have to pay £1 extra for a few items that would hit poorer people hard.

    At £1 per bag you and "poorer people" would be less likely to forget. Unwanted £1 bags could be collected from the wealthy and distributed amongst the poor.

    Even at £1 I suspect my neighbours will continue buying them and throwing them away. I now collect their reusable bags from the communal bins and sell them to Ocado, or use them myself if they are clean (which they usually are)
