Reduce the Use - plastic bag pollution

Reduce the Use -  plastic bag pollution

Charge 10 cents for each bag issued. Customers would very soon bring their own bags, or buy eco bags for use.

Why is this important?

Australian use 4,000,000,000 plastic bags a year (7,000 an hour) . Most are not biodegradable. They pollute our land and many end up in the ocean. Turtles, birds and fish suffer greatly.


Reasons for signing

  • I am spending too much time removing plastic rubbish from the beach, but still not enough to make much change for the unfortunate birds who swallow them.
