The Woolworths spokesperson confirmed that customers are welcome to bring any bags they like when shopping at Woolworths, so long as they’re clean and hygienic for our team to handle.
Phew! But while these rumours are incorrect, Woolworths recently confirmed another big change to their bag options - paper shopping bags. The supermarket giant recently responded to customers consumers’ cries for a more environmentally-friendly bag option by rolling out 20 cent reusable and recyclable paper bags.
"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."
