MP does his bit af­ter bag ban

Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS -

WITH the ban on sin­gle-use plas­tic bags com­ing into ef­fect last Sun­day and the bags al­ready banned at Wool­worths, Dawesville MLA Zak Kirkup has been hand­ing out free re­us­able bags at lo­cal shop­ping cen­tres.

“We have teams of vol­un­teers out and about mak­ing sure peo­ple know about the ban but also giv­ing them re­us­able bags. I love Mandurah and we thought there was noth­ing more iconic than a crab to put on the bag, which is how we’ve ended up with this de­sign that has been in­cred­i­bly pop­u­lar,” he said.

“For any­one who does not get the chance to grab one from our vol­un­teers over com­ing days, con­tact me on­line or drop into the of­fice on Old Coast Road, Fal­con.”
