Ban on plastic bags in France

What you need to know before going shopping in France

Since the 1st January 2017, France has banned single-use plastic bags. This ban applies to all shops, supermarkets, bakeries, butchers, chemists, as well as markets.

If you shop in France, you will get recyclable and reusable biodegradable bags instead.

Some market traders are charging for bags. Therefore, if you shop at a local market in France, bring a basket!
