Submissions on single-use plastic shopping bags released

Thanks for sharing your views

More than 9,300 New Zealanders and organisations have had their say on the Government’s consultation on the proposed mandatory phase out of single-use plastic shopping bags in New Zealand.
 
Overall 92 per cent of submitters on the consultation (including those that responded to the short online survey) supported the proposed mandatory phase out.
 
A range of views were expressed in the submissions and these are all being carefully considered by Ministers as they undertake decisions on policy.
