Ask Countdown NZ: Ban The Bag
In July, Countdown spokesperson was reported as saying ‘no’, they wouldn't stop using single-use plastic bags. This was despite their parent company, Woolworths Australia, having done so, and showing it’s possible.
Today (4 Oct 2017) Countdown announced they've come round, and are starting a phase out of plastic bags to be completed by the end of the 2018. Nice one Countdown!
