Harris Farm Markets in Bowral have joined the big supermarket chains by phasing out single plastic bags

The family run grocer goes through 22 million plastic bags every year and will instead offer a range of free small single-use paper bags and reusable paper bags sold at cheaper than 15 cents or cost price.

Marketing Manager James Kerridge says they've been concerned about the impact on the environment for quite some time.

Late April, Harris Farm brought in a campaign used to encourage customers to say no to plastic bags.
