New Zealand is moments away from banning the bag
June 14, 2019
New Zealand is banning single-use plastic bags from July 1, 2019.
With the country currently using over 750million plastic bags a year, or the equivalent of 150 per person in New Zeland, the plastic bag ban will protect from pollution of coastal and marine environments.
The New Zealand ban legislation is more comprehensive than most, including bags made of a degradable plastic (ie compostable or biodegradable bags).
Making the move to paper carry bags gives consumers a sustainable option, providing a bag that is strong enough to be reused and 100% recyclable.
Consider your sustainable bag alternatives.
