In New Zealand, the future of the single-use plastic bag has been in the national spotlight lately, with supermarkets and businesses around the country announcing an intention to say goodbye to what used to be a store staple.

On Monday, 10 Countdown supermarkets went plastic bag free, with the intention all 182 stores will follow suit at the end of the year. 

New World supermarkets will be doing the same by the end of 2018 and Mitre 10 announced its decision for all 128 stores, including Mitre 10 Mega and Hammer Hardware, to go plastic bag free from July 1.

Another example of NZ leading the way.  But where is the govt in all this?  What about all the other business that hand out far to many plastic bags?
