There has been a lot of campaigning for a ban on plastic bags and we are making very good progress. Coles and Woolworths are going to phase them out and in Queensland they will be banned from mid next year. Now another state has come on board with the battle against plastic bags. Today It has been announced that Western Australia will be banning plastic bags from July 2018. This is fantastic news.
Plastic bags are one of the most littered items in the world. We only use them once for around 10 minutes then we throw them out or litter them. Plastic never breaks down even so called "biodegradable plastic". Biodegradable plastic just breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces and this can be worse for the environment.
Going plastic bag free is easy. It is just about changing your habits. Remember to bring a reusable bag or go to a shop that has Boomerang Bags. The small things we do everyday make a difference.
