Tasmanian Government takes firm stance on plastic bags

A huge development in the campaign against plastic bag use has occurred in Tasmania, with the government making a promise to make the island state plastic bag free by the end of 2013. Pollution from plastic bags is having a devastating effect on the environment. Australians consume up to 10 million plastic bags a day, using them for an average of 5 minutes. Bags once discarded cause havoc on the environment resulting in the death of countless animals and destroying natural surrounds.

Tasmania has long been considered one of Australia’s most beautiful wilderness regions. By committing to the eradication of plastic bags they are building a sustainable future and ensuring their state retains its reputation. The ban will come into effect on November 1st, until then businesses will roll out campaigns to spread public awareness. This is a huge leap for Tasmania and sends a great message to organisations around the world trying to rid their communities of these harmful pollutants.

The Tasmanian town of Coles Bay was the first in the country to ban the use of plastic bags in 2003. Ten years on, and Tasmania as a whole now joins SA, NT and the ACT in achieving this milestone.

Envirosax has been spreading the message of reuse with its stylish bags for nine years now and have created a beautiful product that just by its use is an environmental solution.
