Most single-use plastic bags are only used for about 12 minutes but could take a century to break down, let alone the environmental effects of production and distribution! There is more to the simple plastic bag than meets the eye, please read more in this article
New Zealanders use on average 700 million plastic supermarket bags per year, not including other single plastic bags! We really need to, at least, substantially reduce this but ideally eliminate single use plastic bags all together. The best way to do this is to use reusable shopping bags.
The trick is to always have reusable bags in all your car/s and in your handbag and when you’ve unloaded your shopping put it straight back into your bag or by the door to put back in your car when you next go out.
We have a selection of wonderful resuable shopping bags!
