Bag a Shopping Spree
From 1 July 2018, retailers are no longer able to supply single-use lightweight plastic shopping bags to customers, for free or at a charge. This includes compostable, degradable and biodegradable bags as they break down in the environment in the same way as conventional plastic shopping bags and can still harm the environment and wildlife.
On average a plastic bag is used for just 12 minutes, so that’s 12 minutes carrying our groceries to the car (and) the pantry and after that it’s tossed away and it takes 1000 years to break down. So our great, great, great, great, great … grandchildren will share a planet with the plastic bags that we used!
Help us promote awareness by visiting our eco display in-centre near ALDI. The display is up for a month and is made from cardboard and other recycled materials collected at The Pines Elanora and from other recycled resources.
Keep an eye out for our SWAP n SHOP promotion. Pick up our Handy reusable tote bag from our ECO display. Fits neatly in a pocket or handbag. Be quick… only while stocks last!
