WA is one of the last states in Australia where plastic bags have not been banned and the environment and marine life is suffering.
Both Mandurah and Murray councils say they support a ban on plastic bags but a ban can only happen at State level.
The City of Mandurah considered a report in 2014 outlining the options available to minimise the use of plastic bags in Mandurah.
But when the City of Fremantle tried to adopt a local law, it was overruled by the former Liberal Government on the basis that such a campaign would need to be directed towards the State because local government did not have the power to implement a ban.
However, Environment Minister Stephen Dawson said recently a state-wide ban on plastic bags would be introduced by 2019.
The Shire of Murray plans to consult the community and forward the results to the State Government.
Peel-Harvey Catchment Council supports a ban on plastic bags and staff are only using re-useable bags.
Aldi, the German supermarket with three stores in Mandurah, Halls Head and Lakelands, supports a ban on single use plastic carry bags and from day one has not offered free plastic bags to shoppers.
Customers are encouraged to take their own bags or buy a reusable bag from the store, ranging from a 15c heavy duty plastic bags made from 80 per cent recycled materials, a 99c coloured fabric bag and a $2.49 cooler bag.
