How to prepare for the imminent plastic bags ban in supermarkets – AustraliaPosted on May 2, 2018 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
The countdown has begun – in less than two months free plastic carry bags in supermarkets will be a thing of the past.
Coles and Woolworths are already beginning to phase out plastic bags in dozens of stores Australia-wide, and by July the transition will be complete.
This is way over due. It shows how ridiculous the shopping industry has become. The ‘I won’t do it if you won’t do it’ is so negative. If they followed a leadership plans of ‘I’ll be first to extoll our new plans to look after the environment’ then see the others try to catch up.
As for Target, the reason they gave is not quite true. They blamed the charging of the bags on the down turn in their sales. Really? Ignoring the fact that all retail was down at the same time! Such petty managers.
