Ban the use of plastic bags in New Zealand

This petition had 11,510 supporters

Annually approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. More than one million bags are used every minute. It takes 500-1,000 years for plastic to degrade.

As part of a year 13 social studies class at New Plymouth Girls' High School, we are wanting to bring awareness on the overuse of plastic bags supported by the New Zealan government. We are hoping that this will bring to light the pollution that New Zealand has caused towards the environment and the oceans. Because of this, we need to show that plastic bags are not the future we want for our beautiful country. NO PLASTIC IS FANTASTIC
