Thanks to the wide support of major supermarket and retail chains, the 'No plastic bag day' campaign will be extended to 2007 in Hong Kong.

The Environmental Protection Department said the patrons include Wellcome, Park Shop, China Resources Vanguard, Watsons, Mannings, 7-Eleven, Circle-K, DCH Food Marts, City' Super, A-1 Bakery and ThreeSixty.

They promised to have the campaign at least once a month.

ThreeSixty in the Landmark is the first store which does not distribute any plastic bags.

Since June, more than 30 major supermarket and retail chains have joined the voluntary scheme to reduce the indiscriminate use of plastic shopping bags.

According to a Green Student Council customer survey, participating retailers distributed an average of more than 40 percent fewer plastic bags on 'No plastic bag days'.
