Say no to plastic bags
WHITSUNDAY Regional Council and Eco Barge Clean Seas Inc. are again urging local businesses to support the Plastic bag free March campaign.
Mayor Jennifer Whitney said last year, 12 local retailers signed on to say no to plastic bags during the month of March raising local awareness about their impacts on our local environment and wildlife.
Founding Chair of Eco Barge Clean Seas Inc. Libby Edge, said the Whitsunday region used a staggering 180,000 plastic bags every week. Individuals and retailers interested in getting involved are urged to contact Josh Dyke on 4945 0233.
