Social media has been flooded with comments from outraged shoppers who seem to be having a hard time wrapping their head around the concept of taking a reusable bag to the supermarket with them.
When you’ve been to the shops a handful of times since the plastic bag ban started and yet still haven’t put the reusable bags in the car so you keep buying more ????????????♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Dammit #Woolworths #BagForGood #FeelingEnvironmental #ReUse #GreenBags #NeedToRememberTheFuckingThings #ForThePlanet #Shopping #GroceryShopping #PlasticBagBan
As reported by News.com.au, one shopper was so annoyed by not having anything to cart their groceries home in, they loaded their entire trolley into the boot of their car. Literally the whole damn thing.
Many people can’t seem to understand why the supermarket giants have banned plastic bags, but still continue to wrap their produce in plastic packaging. Fair point.
While some customers claim taking your own shopping bags to the supermarket really isn’t rocket science, others are fuming.

I’m at this weird middle ground in my life where I despise getting a #plasticbag with groceries, but also can’t adapt my bathroom trash can to live w/o them.

So now the pretend green supermarkets have taken out free plastic bags &?are charging for heavier non biodegradable plastic bags I ‘am sure’ they will now reduce prices overall by the amount saved by no longer providing free bags @acccgovau @Coles @woolworths #plasticbag ripoff
