Ban Single-use Plastic Bags in Kaipara
This petition had 10,103 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.
