Screening puts bag ban in spotlight
Bag It, the 2010 film, was screened for free at Narrogin Town Hall last Thursday ahead of the rollout of the State Government single-use plastic bag ban on July 1.
Event organiser Johanna Eppler said she felt the need for the film to be shown, encouraging people to completely switch from plastic at checkouts, rather than purchasing the heavier plastic bags for 15¢, which would still be available after the ban. “I ran the event to inform community members about plastic bags and the material used to make them in the lead-up to the ban,” she said.
“I hope it encourages people to buy canvas bags rather than paying the 15¢ for heavier plastic bags, and that they have a chat to family and friends about the issue.
“It was very generous for the Shire of Narrogin to offer the hall free of charge, to encourage the community to go plastic free.”
