What do you think of the ACT Government’s ban on plastic shopping bags?

Paul Fitzgerald. "I think it's rubbish. It's something that's only in Canberra, if not one other place in Australia, but then they produce the plastic bags still and the plastic is thicker. We keep buying the bags and they still pile up. I question whether it's environmentally effective or not. We've got so much landfill."Photo: Katherine Griffiths

Annie Lindsay. "I think it's a good idea. I like that it makes people more conscious of their waste. It teaches them to think before they just chuck bags away."Photo: Katherine Griffiths

John Weir. "I think it?s disgraceful. Every other state doesn't have to. You can go over the border to Queanbeyan and get all the bags you want. I don't believe that [the government's] figure at all. I see people coming out with handfuls of groceries because they don't want to pay for bags."Photo: Katherine Griffiths

Sue Pierce. "It's alright. It's good for the environment. I usually have bags anyway now so it doesn't cost me anything. You adapt."Photo: Katherine Griffiths
