Ban the bag is the easiest way to go plastic free this July. Bring your own bags to the shops, put a cloth bag in your handbag or backpack, or use a bag you've already got with you instead of taking new plastic bags.

Clean Up Australia estimates about 8% of plastics removed from streets, parks, beaches, bushland and waterways are plastic bags. These plastic bags are not just unsightly - they can cause animals to choke, smother or die of malnutrition.

Banning plastic bags is a small but significant step we can take to reduce our reliance on plastic. And if you must get a bag for your groceries or convenience store purchases, remember to take it back to the supermarket for recycling.
