Plastic Bags

3.92 billion of them. That's how many Australia used in a year. Enough to circle the earth 24 times. And only 3% of them were recycled. It's such a waste, because making each 8.7 bags consumes the same energy as driving a car a kilometre.

The better alternative is to use (and reuse) the 'green bags' - which now come in a variety of colours - even those of your favourite football team. :)

If you do forget your re-usable bag(s), at least recycle the plastic one - or get another re-usable one and give it to a friend when you're done with it.
