Stop using plastic bags that are not biodegradable

In one year, approximately 4 billion plastic bags are used in Australia. They all end up in landfills, in natural landscapes, or in the sea, hurting marine life. Plastic bags take several decades to degrade, and so linger for a long time causing environmental damage. Using biodegradable bags will severely reduce environmental damage, as they decompose in 2 months, maximum. It is about time Woolworths and Coles Australia made the switch to use biodegradable plastic bags, just like several other supermarkets worldwide are currently doing.
