BIG W ON BOARD WITH BAGS
Big W is the first large Whitsunday retail chain store to get on board, and according to Ms Wells, it won’t be the last.
“There are three Woolworths in the area which I’m hoping will get behind it and if we do it maybe Coles might follow,” she said.
Barb Adamson welcomed those interested in volunteering or donating materials to call her on 0458 525 700. A COMMITMENT from Big W to support the Boomerang Bag project is the beginning of a cultural change in the Whitsundays.
Acting Big W store manager Edwina Wells was presented with a stand holding 50 Boomerang Bags by Barb Adamson and Jo Pillifeant on Monday.
The bags are designed to reduce reliance on plastic by being lent to shoppers who have forgotten their eco bags, on the premise they can be returned at a later
