The major supermarkets have stopped using cheap plastic bags and are now issuing larger, more durable plastic bags.
It didn’t take long for the larger bags to festoon the roadside.
Some years ago, I used to take my dogs for a walk near the old rubbish tip at South Woy Woy.
One particular stormy day we witnessed the tidal creek near the tip, well, it was covered in plastic bags.
They hung from trees and bushes.
They covered the water of the creek.
It was surreal, like a Salvador Dali painting, once seen never forgotten.
