The Environmental Protection Administration will announce to ban the big-box stores from providing plastic bags for free. However, some hypermarkets even take a further step to halt selling plastic bags. RT-Mart announced that its 22 stores will suspend selling plastic bags from July 1, and this move will cut the use of 7.3 million plastic bags per year.
Cashiers in RT-Marts often ask shoppers if they want to purchase shopping bags? However starting July 1, 22 RT-Marts in Taiwan are to stop selling plastic shopping bags to shoppers, aiming to reduce 7.3 million plastic bags per year.
I bought it here. (Then do you know they no longer sell plastic bags starting July 1?) She said it.
It's very good. (Why so?) Well, if I already have too many trash bags (at home), I recycle it even I took it home. It's a waste.
I never use it.
Most shoppers support the implementation. On April 22 the Earth Day, RT Marts initially tried the implementation, and twenty thousand plastic bags were saved in that day. RT Mart in Nei-hu observed that over half of its shoppers prepared shopping bags by themselves. Therefore the store no longer sells plastic shopping bags.

The quantity of plastic bags used is as high as 7 million. Therefore we encourage shoppers to prepare by themselves, in order to decrease the quantity of plastic bags used.

From May to today June 1, we had 50% more shoppers prepared shopping bags by themselves.
As to Carrefour, the company takes on gradual implementation, starting in May, 19 stores in New Taipei City will not provide plastic shopping bags for sale. Another major retailer PX Mart is promoting reuse of plastic bags. PX Mart is to terminate sales of plastic bags in stores in Taipei and New Taipei City starting January 1 of 2018.
