Victoria bans single-use plastic bags

image 18th Oct 2017 — The Victorian government has committed to outlawing plastic bags following the lead of supermarket giants Coles and Woolworths who announced their own bans earlier this year.

The latest announcement comes after intense lobbying from environment groups who had been pressuring the Andrews government to adopt similar bans already introduced by other states.

No date has been set for the ban to take effect, but it is expected to be announced in early 2018.
