At this stage it is believed that the new paper bags are available in limited Woolworths stores as a trial.
A Woolworths spokesperson has confirmed to New Idea Food that the paper bags are a trial in some stores: "We’re trialling paper bags in around 20 stores to test customer demand and will closely monitor feedback as we do.
"The vast majority of our customers bring their own bags to shop, but we know there are occasions when they forget or visit our stores unplanned.
"We continue to offer our Bag for Good and 15 cent reusable plastic bags to our customers in all our stores."
