Most supermarkets continue to use non-woven bags though the normal plastic carry bags are largely out of the picture.
Long way to go: Plastic carry bags continue to be a looming presence in Kozhikode city despite attempts by supermarkets to switch over to cloth bags.
However, many have started bringing bags from home after we started charging ?6 for non-woven bags,” Mr. Haneefa said.
“There is a scarcity for cloth carry bags.
Enough number of cloth bags will be made available soon and we will be able to keep our word by December.”
