Approximately 150 million plastic bags do not get recycled by Australians each year. As a result they end up in our oceans and waterways.
Making the switch to reusable bags is a great first step to significantly lowering this number. For all those forgetful people who keep winding up in their local grocery store without their reusable bags, do what you need to do to remember! Try keeping them in your car, writing notes for yourself around the house, popping reminders in your phone to pack them before your shopping trips or go back home and get them.
A little extra thought and time now, will mean that collectively we can all start to change our mind-set and then once we do ... we can change the world!
