We've got some fantastic news to share that will make your green hearts beam. New Zealand, the land of stunning landscapes and kiwi birds, has taken a giant leap towards a plastic-free future. 

Get ready to do a happy dance as we explore the exciting ban on single-use produce plastic bags in New Zealand supermarket fruit and veg sections. With a ban already in place across Australia & NZ for single-use plastic shopping bags, it's time to bid farewell to those pesky single-use thin bags you see in the produce section, and embrace a greener shopping experience!

New Zealand, known for its commitment to environmental protection, has long been a trailblazer in sustainable practices. The ban on thin plastic bags is yet another feather in the country's conservation cap. By implementing this bold move, New Zealand is setting an example for the rest of the world, showcasing its dedication to preserving its breathtaking natural beauty.
