Make Otautahi-Christchurch one-use plastic-bag free
Wahoo! bye bye (plastic) bag!
No doubt you have heard the news that the Government is to ban one-use plastic bags. You had a hand in achieving this remarkable result. Take a bow!
Yes, there’s still much we can and need to do (tackling other forms of plastic pollution and challenging the absurdity of our society’s ‘throw away’ mentality) but for now it’s time to pat ourselves on the back, wear a big smile and say ‘together, we did it’!
Thanks everyone! Well done! Enjoy the moment!
