This week will see Australians take a significant step towards that plastic-free future, with major supermarkets turning their backs on throwaway plastic bags, and an outright ban on free plastic bags at shops in Queensland and Western Australia. A Senate report this week recommended a ban on single-use plastics such as takeaway food containers and plastic-lined coffee cups by 2023.
It is remarkable how far we have already come in the effort to reduce our plastic pollution. We are rapidly reaching the point at which the relevant question is not “which plastics can we do without?”, but “which single-use plastics do we genuinely need?”
From June 20, Woolworths, Big W, BWS, and a bunch of other stores will be self-banning plastic shopping bags in NSW. This includes online shopping, which will now carry additional fees. Here are the details.

Earlier today, we paid a visit to OzHarvest's flagship store to check out what was on offer. The sheer variety of supermarket goods on display astounded us. Here are the pictures.
Amazon shopping is coming to Australia - and it aims to have stores in every Australian state by 2017. If you have shares in Coles or Woolworths you should be worried. If you own an independent grocery store you should be very worried. Here's everything we know about Amazon's shopping strategy and how it will affect they way we buy goods in Australia.
The ever-increasing cost of groceries is currently burning a major hole in everyone’s wallet and has a lot of us frankly stressed out. A Galaxy survey of 1000 people nationwide conducted on behalf of debt solutions provider Fox Symes found that 52 per cent of all Australians are forced to use their credit card to pay for every day costs including groceries because they simply don’t have the cash available. As many as 2.9 million Aussies say they have to do this frequently.
