Poll: Should plastic bags be banned at outdoor markets?

Mandy Te Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Hi neighbours! What are your thoughts on plastic bags? It's thought that we only use a plastic bag for 12 minutes before we bin it or drop it. Do you bring your own bag with you when you go to farmers' markets or the supermarket? Why/why not? We'd love to read your opinions in the comments section!
