THINKING DAY RALLEY

The Thinking day ralley  was conducted on this year with the theme of “Plastic Ban”

Single-use plastic shopping bags litter our environment, harm wildlife and require valuable resources to manufacture. The some other countrys  have also already banned single-use plastic shopping bags.

Now over government also took various steps to ban plastic .

The ban has reduced plastic bag use, with shoppers encouraged to bring their own bags. Overall the ban has reduced the volume of plastic bag waste going to landfill by around one-third.

The ban applies to all retailers in the ACT for single-use, lightweight polyethylene polymer plastic bags that are less than 35 microns in thickness (these are the thin plastic bags with handles that were typically supplied at supermarkets check-outs). The ban does not apply to other bags such as barrier bags for fruit and vegetables.

The ACT’s plastic bag ban was internally reviewed in 2012 and 2014, including through community surveys. In 2018 the ban was independently reviewed by the government.

We should also  follow the suit  to reduce the overall environmental implications.
