About 200 pharmacies have signed up for 'No Plastic Bag Day' and, from tomorrow, will no longer offer plastic bags on Tuesdays. Customers wanting a plastic bag will be urged to pay 50 HK cents as a donation to the Environment and Conservation Fund. Pharmacies typically give out close to 1,000 plastic bags daily, according to the Hong Kong General Chamber of Pharmacy.
