Fifty-three percent of Australian shoppers say they “are likely to refuse plastic bags offered at the supermarket”, according to a Newspoll survey.

According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the government has given retailers until this month “to come up with a long-term plan to reduce plastic bag pollution, including a possible levy.”
