I don’t use garbage bags at all, we only get our bin emptied every two weeks out here, but I just hose it out on bin day and it’s good to go.
I compost most food scraps, don’t buy anything with plastic packaging or anything that comes in a plastic bottle. I have a recycling bin but the only thing I ever use it for is dog food tins and my husband VB cans which fills it up every week.

For my shopping I just put it back into the loose trolley after it’s scanned, then pack it into a container in my boot.

I go to the local fruit and veg where you can buy everything fresh and loose rather than pre packed and put it straight into your own cloth bag. Many locals do the same. Off to the butcher and get some plastic there but not much. Again all is packed in the cloth bag. Off to  the bakery and fish shop where everything is packed in paper.
 
Down at Coles almost all products come packed in plastic. The rest in tin. Now they want to tell you they wont give you free bags but will they change all their own packaging? Most rubbish they sell in plastic I can by elsewhere in town without it and much better quality. We also have the weekend markets to buy stuff from local growers and producers. Stuff Coles!
 
I use newspaper, a few sheets thick, on the garden instead of cardboard Tonto - same result. Hose it down, pile the mulch on, and no weeds. All I need now is a little pig plus some chooks and most household waste will disappear. By products? Eggs, free range chicken, bacon and ham.
 
Life in the country is good.

It is a shame they dont have a recycled paper version of Fox News Doc. With it's world renowned bullsh*t absorbing properties, just imagine  how much dogchit that rag would absorb?Thumbs Up

Aldi have never used single use plastic bags, have they. I can remember packing stuff into boxes years ago. Do Aldi hate dogs?

I'm all for reducing plastics - just find this move cynical at best. Rigid plastics are of much more concern than thin gauge flexible plastics. When the latter are exposed to normal environmental conditions they will usually break-down - granted this can be months to years depending. The former take much, much longer. So lets have a quick look at the amount of rigid plastics around - ice cream containers, soft drinks, deodorants & the like, laminate sachets that include plastic for squillions of things, polystyrene trays for meat , fruit & vegies - I could go on. Fact is their would be more products packed in some form of plastic than not in a Supermarket. And as has been pointed out many carry bags were reused at home (we also used for our animal droppings). Not so easy for CBD apartment dwellers to come up with some of the methods promoted above (& I'm not "bagging" them either). The Dr is right - this was an opportunity to promote themselves as good Corporate citizens knowing full well it was not going to cost them a penny. In fact you could argue plastic bag sales will sky rocket so they will make a quid out of it. They will probably increase the mark up as well to "discourage" their customers from buying them. Yep - conned again - sorry !

So you never buy anything in sachets Smoke ? You do realise those thousands of grocery items in sachets have plastic in them don't you ? And because it is melded usually with paper & foil it is much harder to naturally degrade. I'd go as far as saying it would be extremely limiting going grocery shopping without going home with some items wrapped in some form of plastic

The plastic is necessary for a number of reasons - not the least being the ability to heat seal the package closed

Another question for the big Supermarkets re plastics - why is it that over the years you have allowed the replacement of both aluminium & glass cans/bottles with plastic ? I mean your the ones flogging the stuff - you must have some sort of pull with the manufacturers. Maybe its not that big a deal after all

We have a farm so we grow our own produce and butcher our own meat. Not that we are big meat eaters.

I normally only go into town to purchase things once a month.

I have set myself up on a self sustainable property so I don’t have to rely on a supermarket to live my life.

Been there done that, when we retired we sold up everything in Melbourne and moved to a little property west of Ballarat. Built up from scratch.

I really don’t know how we survived so long in the CBD.

Not sure that's my go Smoke. For starters we don't have all that much "get up & go" - I'm a lazy blighter for starters. Like our local restaurants, Clubs & Pubs too much. Anyhow good luck to you

So because of this plastic bag ban it sounds like there is going to be small mountains of dog poop all over Sydney.
Will councils ban dogs next in response?

Shopping online invariably mean everything you buy comes pre packaged in some form. Not  good for your health not good for the environment. I notice a lot of apartment blocks  in big cities are now forming co-ops to grow fruit and veg on any available land downstairs and on rooftops. You can even grow on the apartment balcony or indoors. Our friends in London also have bee hives. They get the local council to grow bee friendly plants in local parks, gardens and any available green space.

This is a little off topic but worth knowing about.  

I grow a lot of my own veg.  The rest I grow at a community garden, and swap with others at a weekly swap meet.  

The community garden is a lot of fun.  The council provides the ground, the tools and the plants. We grow the produce and anyone is welcome to pick it... but let's just say the community gardeners are strategically placed to get the pick of the crop.  Also, we tend to grow more than we need, and any surplus I take to a swap meet and exchange it for veg (or other goods) that I do need.  

The swap meets occur every Saturday morning.  Everyone who turns up brings something.  It might be vegetables or fruit or young plants or garden tools or anything else that gardeners will find useful.  In return they take something.  But mainly we chat and drink cups of tea and eat the muffins that somebody brought along (in exchange for a basket of lemons or bunches of fresh herbs).  Gardeners love to give advice and share their experience.

It's all home grown and organic and ... free.

And BYO bag - or if you are a very cool poser - a wicker basket.
