China is about to try to kick a three-billion-a-day plastic bag habit. But breaking the addiction, in a bid to save energy and protect the environment, will be easier said than done.

The world’s most populous nation on Sunday will join a growing list of countries, from Ireland to Bangladesh, that are aiming to change shoppers’ habits when a ban on the production of plastic bags under 0.025 millimetres thick comes into force.

Ultra-thin bags are the principal target of the crackdown because they are typically used once and then discarded.
