Ban Single-use Plastic Bags in Kaipara

This petition had 10,082 supporters

We the undersigned citizens of the Kaipara District request that the Kaipara District council introduces a bylaw banning single-use plastic bags.

for the following reasons

  • Over 40,000 plastic check-out bags are dumped in landfills every hour in New Zealand
  •  Plastic Bags pollute New Zealand streams, rivers and oceans and their ecosystems 
  • Plastic bags take 500 years to break down in landfills
  • Plastic shopping bags are not FREE…they are a cost to retailers, to our environment and to us.
