The EcoCentre stepped up promotion of Plastic Free July a notch in 2016.

A team of volunteers made a supply of net produce bags and cloth shopping bags which we had for sale at the Bottle Buy Back stalls in the market and also at the EcoCentre. Plastic bags are one of the main sources of plastic pollution and have caused many deaths of marine life who eat them.

Plastic Free July is an initiative that started in Western Australia and has gone global. People are encouraged to sign up for anything from a day to the whole month to go without single use disposable (ie non-recyclable) plastic.

The EcoCentre is continuing to sell the bags year round. If you’d like to join our team of volunteers who make them then please get in touch! All proceeds from the sale of the bags go towards the work of the EcoCentre.
