#BanTheBag goes viral thanks to The Project

plastic bag nightmare 001

During tonight’s episode of The Project, Waleed Aly called on the Australian public to show politicians that majority of Aussies want to live in a plastic-bag free nation, and it’s proving to be very effective. 

Watch below.

As soon as the segment ended, Twitter blew up with the hashtag #BanTheBagshooting to the number one trending spot. 

The campaign calls NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, and WA Premier Mark McGowan to follow South Australia, Tasmania, Northern Territory, the ACT, and (soon to be) Queensland, to ban plastic bags. 

Waleed stated that when The Project reached out to the three Premiers, all three agreed to implement the ban if it was a national ban; if that’s what the Australian people want. 

Teaming up with Change.org, the petition already has, at this moment, 8,365 signatures, which is not far away from the 10,000 signature goal. This comes not even one hour after the show ended! 

"Every minute, we send 7,150 plastic bags to landfill. But 80 million plastic bags never make it to landfill, and instead end up in our litter stream, killing 100,000 birds and marine life every year.

On average, it’s estimated we use a single-use plastic bag (like you’d find at Coles and Woolies) for just 12 minutes."
