REMINDER: Coles Stops Giving Out Free Plastic Bags Today

If you want a plastic bag at Coles today you're gonna have to pay for it.  

On July 1 Coles banned single-use plastic bags - removing them from their stories. 

However the chain agreed to pass out free reusable plastic bags for a short time to help customers adjust to the ban. 

Later, Coles extended its bag giveaway before saying they'd be giving away the heavy-use bags for free indefinately - sparking outrage from concerned customers and environmental groups. 

“Complimentary bags were an interim measure to help customers make the transition to reusable bags, and complimentary bags are no longer being offered,” a spokesman said.
