Coles made a stand and buckled at the knee. With their bag ban now dead, we’re worse actually worse off than before.
As a supermarket employee, the upcoming plastic bag ban has enabled a lot of complaint, and I’ve had enough. Just bring your bags from home, and pop your manners in it. Simple.
With Woolworths (and Coles soon after it) banning the plastic bag from tomorrow, we should truly care, and truly shouldn’t.
While most of us love a good home brand bargain from Coles and Woolworths, Anne Johnston wants you to consider the real cost of this consumer hunger for cheap goods.
