Greenpeace’s Sam Chetan-Welsh said: “If the Government delays, it will be asking our rivers, oceans and wildlife for an extension they can’t afford to give.”
Friends of the Earth’s Camilla Zerr said the scheme could be a gamechanger in reducing plastic waste in the sea.
Libby Peake, of independent think tank Green Alliance, said: “A successful scheme will drive down plastic pollution and other litter, boost recycling businesses and help people do the right thing.
“Government needs to get a move on.”
