All EU member states including the UK must have measures to curb the use of plastic bags by the end of 2018

But Prime Minister Theresa May and environment secretary Michael Gove are this week due to set out plans for the levy to cover nearly all plastic bags.
Gove, who arrived at the meeting carrying a reusable coffee cup, is understood to be considering a wide range of proposals to boost resource efficiency and minimise plastic waste.
Prime Minister Theresa May is set to announce the 25-year environment plan on Thursday to tackle "throw-away culture".
The Sun reported that Gove is also planning to unveil plans for a plastic bag bottle scheme that would see shoppers paid 5p for returning used bottles.
However, much of the long-awaited 25 Year Plan for Nature remains under wraps, with little indication as what action it will take on wider issues such as soil erosion, biodiversity loss, resource security, and climate resilience.
May and environment secretary Michael Gove are said to have briefed the cabinet on the plan on Tuesday.
You could start having to pay 5p for a carrier bag in corner shops and smaller stores to fit in with a government environment plan.
The only exemptions for the extended 5p levy are likely to be some pharmacies and pet shops selling goldfish.
Environment Secretary Michael Gove told colleagues that the introduction of a 5p charge on single-use plastic bags had contributed to a reduction of almost 90 per cent in their use, in a clear demonstration of what can be achieved by targeted official action.
The prime minister's spokesman added: "The environment secretary also said that he was working collaboratively with the secretary of state for global development to look at using aid money on the environmental agenda, such as reducing pollution by plastics".
Government sources have said ministers are open to the idea of a coffee cup charge if evidence shows it would change behaviour.
Together, the two measures are meant to ensure that a greater proportion of the packaging used in the United Kingdom can be recycled.
