Petition Action

Require paper bags be available at all supermarket and Grocery shop.

Petition Details

Any Supermarket and Grocery shop should have paper bag available for the same price as the plastic bag. Public has to be given the option to choose between paper & plastic bag during their shopping.

Additional Information

The amount of plastic use has steadily increased during covid season under the cover as hygeine. But there is evidence Coronavirus lives less long on Paper than plastic. We could continue to reduce plastic waste and continue hygienic shopping if only public is given the option to choose between Paper and plastic bag at shopping center and Grocery shops.
