Coles is under fire for reversing a decision to stop providing free plastic bags to shoppers.
They claim some customers need more time to adjust to the switch to buying reusable bags.
Coles was meant to stop providing its reusable Better Bags for free on August 1 and start charging customers 15 cents per bag, but has now backflipped on that decision and will provide them indefinitely.
“What a bunch of cowards you are @Coles you should be doubling down and not making any plastic bags available in your stores,” Ben B tweeted.
“Hey Coles, I won’t be shopping at Coles until you stop this plastic bag nonsense,” another tweeted.
