Loveday urges end to single use plastic bags

From the article here

"Coun. Jeremy Loveday would like to move faster, saying that the time for study is over and the city should immediately impose either a ban or a levy on disposable bags. “I’m comfortable moving forward with either a ban or a mandatory levy at this point,” said Loveday, who 18 months ago with Coun. Ben Isitt proposed a ban on single-use plastic bags.

“My vision for our coastline is not an ocean that’s increasingly filled with plastic soup — ever smaller pieces of plastic. I think the time to act is now. Other cities, states and whole countries have banned plastic bags, and I think Victoria should follow suit.”
