Poll: Do you think the plastic bag ban has been a success?

Woolworths eco bagIt’s six months since Australian supermarket giants Woolworths and Coles introduced a ban on single-use plastic bags.

Initially the decision was met with much criticism as many consumers struggled to make the adjustment to reusable bags but after subsequent backflips, the ban remained in place.

On January 1, WA introduced a similar ban forĀ all retailers in the state. Retailers who fail to comply with the new laws will face substantial fines and disruptions to business operations.

Today we are asking if you think overall the bag ban has been a success. Cast your vote below and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
