Saving our planet; one bag at a time

Re-usable shopping bags do make a difference!

Even as Planet Ark says 7% against the Australian environment minister Ian Campbell’s claim of 29%, the fact remains that Australia’s plastic bag usage has gone down substantially from the 6.9 billion plastic bags they used last year.

Senator Campbell said the ARA’s figures amounted to a reduction of more than half a billion bags. “If we maintain this effort we could slash plastics bags by over one billion by the end of the year,” he said.

It seems (says the Herald Sun) that the non-supermarket retailers haven’t kept pace with the big boys in this reduction effort.

Now this could be because the average mom and pop store doesn’t have access to re-usable bags at the same low prices that supermarkets can get them for.

Hello, Australian entrepreneurs. There’s all us bag manufacturers just waiting for someone to take advantage of that situation. See the collossal range we offer at Talk to us today

This is also an invitation to thinking entrepreneurs in other parts of the world to discuss their markets’ needs. Imagine making money while saving the world. I can’t think of a nicer business to be in. Can you?
