NSW Labor will calls to ban lightweight single-use plastic bags across NSW.-->
Each and every year hundreds of thousands of marine animals, fish and sea birds die from plastics.
The impact of plastic on our environment is huge. You just need to look to the giant island of garbage in the Pacific Ocean to see how bad it has become.
This is why NSW Labor announced it will call for a ban on lightweight single-use plastic bags across NSW.
Each year 61 million plastic bags enter our environment – and that’s just in NSW.
This is about bringing NSW up to speed with the four other States and Territories already imposing bans.
Lets protect our important and fragile environment.
