On Tuesday a petition will be presented to Parliament from Greenpeace, calling for the Government to ban plastic bags in New Zealand.
- How one plastic bag can harm millions of creatures
- Helen Clark, Sam Neill and Dr Jane Goodall support plastic bag ban
The 'Ban The Bag' petition has more than 65,000 signatures and will be presented to Conservation Minister Eugenie Sage at midday.
While many people have started to cut down on taking plastic bags home from supermarkets, when it comes to lining the rubbish bin it's harder to let go of plastic bags.
