The useful life of a supermarket bag can be counted in minutes. It will then be dumped, taken to landfill or end up in the bellies of our fish and seabirds. This July Raglan aims to not only ban plastic bags, but straws and coffee cups too!
Check out the clip below that Meridian Energy put together on the amazing initiatives going on in our community.
In the midst of Plastic-Free July, we wanted to share this fantastic story about how the Raglan community have managed to reduce their plastic bag use by 95% in the last year. We’re really pleased that funding from our Power Up community funds has helped them achieve this amazing result.
