How to say I don’t need a plastic bag in all 11 official SA languages

Found in: Blog

a plastic bag is made of thin, flexible plastic material, especially one with handles supplied by a shop to carry goods purchased there.

Plastic bags are so lightweight and aerodynamic, that even if we dispose of them properly, they can escape with the wind. They escape from our trash cans, garbage trucks and landfills and they go where the wind takes them.
