I represent a good cause. How can we benefit from the charge?

The money raised by the single use carrier bag charge is collected by the retailer. The Welsh Government wants this to be passed on to good causes, preferably environmental good causes, here in Wales.

A good cause can be anything from a school, small local community group to a national charity. 

You may want to contact local, national and international businesses to see if they are able to donate any of the carrier bag charge proceeds to your cause. 

We have created an example letter that you can use. This is available below.
