Ban plastic bags
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
Currently, Australians use an estimated four to six billion plastic bags each year. That’s 10 million bags every day. Every minute, we send 7,150 plastic bags to landfill. But 80 million plastic bags never make it to landfill, and instead end up in our litter stream, killing 100,000 birds and marine life every year. On average, it’s estimated we use a single-use plastic bag (like you’d find at Coles and Woolies) for just 12 minutes. And that same bag could take up to 1,000 years to break down. A plastic bag you use today will share this planet with your great great great great great great great great great great great great grandchildren.
More sustainable options need to be taken my large corporations as it is their social and environmental responsibility to protect our nature, marine and wildlife not just focus on making profits.
ACT, VIC, SA & WA have banned single use plastic bags, why isn't NSW still lagging behind?
I am a consumer who shops at priceline, chemistwarehouse, cotton on and other major retailers and i am sick and tired of the lack of social responsibility these companies have especially when there are more cheaper, sustainable options such as paper or cloth bags so readily available.
