STEPS TO MAKE THE CHANGE

GET READY

Purchase or make some bags. We'll give you information on the best bags to get your hands on, where you can find them and even how you can make your own on the cheap.

BREAK HABITS

No behavioural change comes easily or swiftly. It will take time to remember to take your bags with you. We'll help you learn about how to break bad habits and change behaviour.

KEEP IT UP

It's easy to change habits when you feel motivated but keeping it up is hard. These changes are for good, so there is no going back. We will help keep you motivated.

INSPIRE

Share your progress with our community and also with your family and friends. Inspire others to switch to better alternatives. The more people, the bigger the impact.

WHY MAKE THIS CHANGE?

Bonnie

I love using my produce bags. If I forget them I just put everything in the trolly or in a different shopping bag. Even at the checkout the assistants don't roll their eyes like they used to. Sometimes if I forget my bags I also use the paper mushrooms bags. I haven't used the plastic produce bags for about 2 years now. 

Warren

I switched a while ago now and I'm finally in the routine. At first I was worried that I would be paying more because the bags might be heavier, but I haven't noticed a difference in price. I'll keep using them. 

Rosie

I've been plastic bag free for years.I found it really easy to make the switch. Once I set it into my shopping routine, it's done. My favourite are the little canvas ones with the holes in them. They are really easy to wash and see whats in them.
