Do you care enough about the environment to put your money where your mouth is?
Supermarket chain New World is calling for customers to vote on whether to bring in a five or 10 cent charge for plastic bags.
If the majority are in favour of a plastic bag charge, the money will be donated to Sea Cleaners, a charitable trust that works to remove rubbish from NZ’s waterways.
People who use their own bags currently receive a five per cent rebate at North Island stores.
Customers can vote at www.bagvote.co.nz until midnight 8 October.
