I’m carrying this @colessupermarkets bag, but I swear it’s not mine! This bag, along with all the soft plastic in it was collected at our recent clean up event. Coles only recently introduced these thick, unsustainable plastic bags, but already I’ve found several at the beach and park.
Coles, since you backflipped on the bag ban and introduced more consumerism with those ‘minis’ little pieces of plastic rubbish, I haven’t set foot in your store, or your petrol stations, both at which I used to go to weekly. I’ve taken my business to @woolworths. I never would’ve thought that day would come, as Woolies isn’t that environmentally conscious either. But to my mind, at least they stood by their decision.
Even though the Coles store is about 200 meters away from me, I hope to never set foot in there again 👊🏽Unless I’m dropping off soft plastic like this and hot footing it out of there.
@woolworths_au I think you are in a unique position to be the supermarket of choice and implement some green options. Any possibility of a plastic free isle or plastic free produce?
Surely it’s time for a sustainable supermarket option to be brought to the market 🙏🏽Anyone else wishing for that?
PS the only good thing about this ‘better bag’ is that it matches my skirt.
