Woolworths says it will hand out free reusable bags for the next 10 days as its customers get used to its ban on single-use plastic bags.

Woolies stores in NSW, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia stopped providing free single-use plastic bags last week and the offer of the free reusable bags - which would normally cost 15 cents - will only apply in those states and until July 8.

Getting into the habit of bringing along reusable bags had been a challenge for some shoppers, Woolworths managing director Claire Peters said on Friday.

"We've listened to these customers and heard they just want a little extra help from us to get through the transition to a more sustainable way of shopping."

Woolworths said the majority of customers were bringing their own reusable bags but some have been caught short by underestimating how many bags they require.
