Woolworths To Phase Out Reusable Plastic Bags
Over the years, Woolworths has taken strides to become not only Australia’s largest supermarket chain, but also Australia’s most sustainable supermarket chain. Now, they’ve done it again! In Early June, Woolworths Group announced their pledge to remove all plastic shopping bags from their supermarkets — for good.
By June 2023, more than 1,000 Woolworths supermarkets nationwide will no longer sell 15c reusable plastic bags. Instead, Woolworths is encouraging shoppers to bring their own reusable bags — which is clearly working!
We’ve seen a huge shift in shopping habits since we stopped giving out single use plastic bags, with 8 out of 10 customers now bringing their own bags from home. Reusable plastic bags have played their part, now it's time to move forward.
