    Here is a real pollution problem that needs to be taken seriously, not CO2 and climate change which we can not affect!

    we need to lessen if not irradiate the superfluous packaging. Far to much produce is wrapped when it shouldn't be. One suggestion is to unwrap at check out and give it back to the supervisor on the floor. If enough of us did that they would pressure suppliers to sort it out. That works better than not buying the products.

    Great initiative, but why are we shown people releasing balloons to celebrate? They're just as bad as plastic bags.

    A big salute to Austrailan People and the Government. This kind of spine by the Government and the Cooperation by public is lacking in India.

    I propose that we all ban tooth picks while we are at it, along with toy balloons and drinking straws. That way we feel less guilty about the big things we do wrong. If the goal is to strive for the irrelevant over the important, we are right on track.

    Germany and nearly all of Europe as CA has been doing it forever. Australia is so far behind in everything, it’s a joke! Time to wake up to the rest of the world!!!

    Funny! Aldi has been doing this since the beginning of business, yet it took Australia so many decades to realise this had to be done nation wide. Where’s the recognition for Aldi actually being the the FIRST in Australia to start it up and also sell more products without the BS plastic packaging around it.

    80% of statistics are made up on the spot. Is this verified as 80% of total or 80% of grocery bags.
