    Depends on how you live and your preferred diet.

    Some backyard hens can deal with a lot of what would otherwise be [wasteful] landfill.

    A compost heap can well manage most other scraps.

    The local re-cycle depot takes care of most of the left-over remainder.

    The supermarkets stirred up the anti-plastic nutters with their banning of plastic bags at the checkout.
    Now the nutters are taking it to the next level and are calling for a 'National Day of Action' against the supermarkets:

    You have to smile.
    The supermarkets have been duped by the nutters into moving to 'plastic free' without realising that they are locked into using plastic for all their made on site produce.
    This could get awkward.
    Food and hygiene regs mean foods items need to be covered and plastic works best for this.
    The nutters are saying they don't mind eating contaminated food.
    Strange people.

    Any particular nutters you have in mind?

    Can we organise a National day of action where people unwrap the groceries they buy and leave the plastic waste (because most of it canít actually be recycled) at the store for them to deal with.
    Plus anyone who signed the partition to ban plastic bags from supermarkets.

    Out walking my dog last night, I passed a house that had about half a dozen bags that had been left out for rubbish collection. Most of the bags were the 15c Countdown 'reusable' ones.
    So no behavioural change there, one use to bring home the groceries, one use to bag up the rubbish. Only they cost the homeowner more (both for the visible cost of the bags and the invisible cost in the non-reduction of grocery prices once free bags were done away with) and presumably more environmental cost in the manufacturer of these thicker/sturdier bags.
    My blog. From personal experience.

    Countdown sell small bin-liner plastic bags with handles for $2.50 for 40 = 6c each.
    Very similar to the their old free plastic bags.
    Perfect!
    Hand a roll of them to the checkout girl and tell her to stack your groceries in them.
    Just like the old days.
