Poll: Are you stockpiling plastic bags?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Are you going out of your way to collect plastic bags before they become illegal in NZ? Some Kiwis have admitted they are stockpiling bags before they can no longer get them from supermarkets and petrol stations.

It's been noticed that some customers have been taking plastic bags for things like single chocolate bars and drinks "to save up".

Do you find plastic bags handy for bin liners? What eco-friendly tips and alternatives to plastic can you share with your neighbours? Leave a reply to share your thoughts.
