To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament:

We the undersigned citizens of Australia, call on the Parliament of Australia to:

Recognise the severe environment damage caused by the 6.4 billion plastic bags used in Australia annually;

Appreciate the success of the new plastic bag levy in reducing the usage of plastic bags, introduced in Ireland in 2002

We, the undersigned petitioners, therefore request the House to introduce a similar plastic bags levy in Australia, in order to reduce plastic bag usage and create a recurrent fund for environmental projects.

by Mr Danby (from 181 citizens)
