Coles Ban the Bag - AGAIN!
Coles has backed down from its commitment to remove single use plastic bags from stores.
Not only is Coles bringing back the bag, they will be handing out thicker ‘reusable’ plastic bags for free, indefinitely!
30% of the world’s turtles and 90% of seabird species have now ingested plastic debris so we simply can’t afford corporate environmental cowardice any more.
To John Durkan, Coles Managing Director --
50 million plastic bags enter Australia's waterways and ocean each year. Don't sell out your environmental principles, set a date to ban the bag - again!
