Environmental Enforcement and Plastic Bags

A headline in the Global Times (a paper published by the official Communist Party’s newspaper The People’s Daily) reads:

Plastic-bag ban paying off: Impact limited as enforcement in rural areas remains lax

This raises two intresting queries: (1) How effective is environmental enforcement in China? (2) How effective is any legislation regulating grocery bags based on product material?  (Some recents studies suggest not at all.)
