SINGAPORE: Household store IKEA will stop selling disposable plastic bags from March 23 to encourage customers to bring their own shopping bags.
However, shoppers can buy the reusable IKEA blue bags.
IKEA started charging five or 10 cents for plastic bags in 2007 as part of efforts to save the environment.
It collected about S$550,000 from 18 million plastic bags sold.
The money was donated to the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to support conservation programmes.
