All the other states of  Australia have already banned single-use plastic bags, so why hasn’t New South Wales taken action? As we know, the world is in a crisis. As Greta Thunberg famously said, “Our house is on fire (...) I want you to act as though our house is on fire. Because it is.”

We are clearly in an emergency and politicians are ignoring it. The only way to make them sit up and take notice is if everyone rose up and not just a few people. An example of this is that every Friday, kids are skipping school to make adults notice. 


Our collective goal is to ban fossil fuels by 2030, but I think we should start with the little things, like banning plastic bags.

You may be thinking that we sound a bit extreme, but if we don’t tell it like it is, people will ignore us. If you saw a house burning down, would you stand by looking in the other direction, pretending it isn’t happening? Because that’s what most people are doing right now. Or would you call triple zero, and/or look for help?


That’s what we’re doing. That’s what Greta Thunberga and thousands of kids around the world are doing. And that’s what you can do as well.

Plastic bags are very polluting. Millions of shops all over the world mass-produce them for them to only be used once. Each year, 500 million to 1 trillion plastic bags are used. And studies show that we only recycle 1 out of every 200 we use. Furthermore, Australians use 10 million plastic bags per day, which adds to 4 billion per year.


However, since the plastic bag ban in most of Australia, we cut down on 80% of our plastic bag use. But 80% isn’t enough. Nothing that isn’t 100% isn’t enough. Sign this petition today to help us reach 100%.
