NEW ZEALAND HAS become the latest in a long line of countries to ban single-use plastic bags entirely.

Ireland has had a plastic bag levy of about €0.15 in place since 2002, but no specific ban is currently in place.

But is it time that changed? Do we need to face up to our environmental responsibilities and bring in a ban of our own?

We’re asking: Should Ireland ban the use of single-use plastic bags entirely?
