Australians currently use over 4 billion plastic bags at the checkout every year. Making a change is simple; next time you shop just say 'no thanks' and use your own bag.
The production of plastic bags is depleting our non-renewable fossil fuels and killing thousands of sea creatures and birds.
The costs are not just environmental, the cost of plastic bags amounts to $100 million a year, which is added to our grocery bills.
It seems such a dreadful waste when you consider that most plastic bags are used once and thrown away virtually hours after use!
The good news is that change is happening, even if it's at a snail's pace! A number of stores such as Bunnings, IKEA and Target have banned or charge you for bags. There are also towns throughout Australia who have banned the bag completely and South Australia has banned bags at all retail outlets.
So why don’t you do your bit and keep a reusable bag in your handbag, and a pack of them in the boot of your car.
