No more single-use plastic bags! Are you ready?

Retailers in Queensland are no longer able to provide single-use plastic shopping bags to customers. So what does that mean for you? It simply means you will need to use another option! I know a few states have been single-use plastic free for a long time, and when we travelled the US, all the supermarkets over there had been single-use plastic free for years, so it’s nice to see Queensland jump on board.

There are so many different choices out there, so I thought I’d put together this handy post to show you some of the options to replace single-use plastic bags.

Tips to help you remember your bags!

  • Purchase enough bags so you can always have spares in your car boot for those times you forget them.
  • Add “take bags” to the top of your shopping list.
  • Pop a small foldable bag in your handbag for those small shops.
  • As soon as you unpack your groceries, pop your bags straight back into your car boot.
