High school student Casey, from Moreton Bay in Brisbane‘s north, decided to keep the bag as a keepsake when the supermarket giant banned single-use plastic carriers in its stores in 2018.

A Brisbane high school student has tried to raise money for his senior formal suit by selling a ‘rare Woolworths plastic bag’ online
‘I needed some extra money and I thought it would just be fun and a good laugh,’ he told 4BC.
He said he had looked at suits online ahead of his formal at Brisbane’s Stamford Plaza hotel and all of them had been around the $300 mark.
The student though said he may consider waiting a while longer to sell the bag so it gains even more in value.
‘Maybe in a couple years time it might actually be worth something!’ He said.

Casey said an art gallery had already offered to help him raise the money he needed.
‘Thrillhouse at Camp Hill [in Brisbane’s inner-east] has offered me $100 to showcase the artefact in their gallery,’ he said.
‘They were wanting to raise money for my suit.’
