Hear 4BC presenter Ben Davis chat with BioBag World Australia Director Scott Morton about what will happen when the major supermarkets stop giving out single-use, light-weight plastic bags on 1st July 2018. Ben thinks we’re being ‘conned’ because the whole point is to reduce the amount of plastic we’ll be using. Instead, we’ll be using more, thicker plastic bags and we’ll be paying for them. Plastic never goes away, even when it breaks down into micro-plastic, it stays in the environment. Compostable, biodegradable bags like BioBags fully break down into organic matter because they are made from compostable polymers, not plastic.
