In what environmental watchdog group the Boomerang Alliance has called a “shocking exercise of corporate irresponsibility”, BIG W has continued to sell what the Alliance alleges are banned single-use plastics in Queensland. Boomerang has accused the giant retailer of green-washing “previous one-off items as ‘’reusable’’, when the clear intent of the law is to remove them from supermarket shelves – to be replaced with genuinely reusable items,”

Companies like Big W need to be told to remove all these items as they are clearly skirting the ‘Intent of the law’ to save plastic from getting into the environment.
