On TikTok the woman praised Woolworths and said: ‘Guess what Woolies has done now? An entire station where you can take a bag or you can leave a bag.’ 

The boxes are free to take and are perfect for recycling. 

And the initiative was applauded by other customers who said the idea was ‘so good’.  

‘About bloody time boxes were brought back!’ another wrote.

A Woolworths spokesperson told FEMAIL the retailer isn’t planning to roll out the service across all stores yet, but is open to the idea. 

‘The community-led initiative started in our Bondi Metro store as a place for customers to leave their unused bags for others to use, particularly in an area frequented by many tourists,’ the spokesperson said. 

‘The store has also now added in boxes to carry groceries too, something we’re open to exploring further in other locations after seeing great feedback from local shoppers like this.’
