Coles joins reusable bag giveaway

Entrada - colesColes has joined Woolworths in providing customers with free reusable bags until Sunday night.

The two supermarket chains have banned so-called single-use plastic bags but say many shoppers are still getting used to the change.

“To help our customers during this transition period, we’re pleased to help out by offering our customers complimentary reusable plastic bags in those states where single-use plastic bags have been removed for the first time,” Coles chief operating officer Greg Davis said.

Coles stores in NSW, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia will offer the “Coles Better Bag” – made from 80 per cent recycled material – for free instead of 15 cents until July 8.
