Petition update


Plastic Bags
Wellington, New Zealand

Jun 16, 2017 — Hi Guys

We have really appreciated all the support you have given our campaign to start to phase out plastic bags. Our campaign is directed to Minister Nick Smith and to show him how much people care about this issue, we would love it if you could support our #bagsinthewild campaign. In this campaign we are asking everyone to take photos of stray plastic bags found in the environment.

We would love it if you guys could participate by sending them to Nick Smith ( along with this message below, and #bagsinthewild as the subject (and post on Instagram and Facebook):

Dear Nick Smith,

I am distressed to see the quantity of plastic bags in the wild. Please make it a priority to help up phase out plastic bags by listening to the voice of the people, and responding to the requests of the phase out plastic bags petition that is coming in July.



Alternatively, you could please send a short message for Minister Smith about why you support this issue (reducing single-use plastic bag usage) to us, as we will pass these on to Nick Smith as well.

Thank you so much for your wonderful support
- Lauren
