Aussie supermarket giants Coles and Woolworths have announced plans to phase out single-use plastic bags over the next 12 months.
Woolworths is currently giving out 3.2 billion lightweight plastic bags per year.
Its decision will affect stores in New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia.
South Australia, ACT, the Northern Territory and Tasmania have already implemented state-wide bans, and Queensland plans to do so next year.
Hopefully this turns into a larger scale ban 😊 #happyfriday #peoplepower #change#banthebag #plasticbags
