#BanTheBag for the Environment
We love the environment, so in January 2018 we ditched plastic shopping bags from our registers for good!
That’s right, single-use plastic bags are no longer available at the registers in-store.
Our customers instead can choose to: take a free, recycled box; BYO bag; or purchase a reusable Nowra Farmers Market bag for $3.50.
This initiative is in support of the Greenpeace ‘Ban the Bag’ campaign that aims to reduce the 4 billion plastic bags used by Australians every year. We pride ourselves on our social responsibility and positive environmental practices are an important part of that.
We started phasing out plastic bags at the point of sale in August 2017, charging 10 cents per plastic bag and offering sustainable alternatives.
According to Greenpeace, more than 50 million single-use plastic bags end up in the environment each year, with a devastating effect on marine life, water systems and landscapes. The environmental conservation organisation estimates that 30 per cent of the world’s turtles and 90 per cent of sea birds have now ingested plastic debris.
Help us help the planet. Let’s all do our bit and support #BanTheBag.
Sign the petition and call on the State Environment Ministers to ban plastic bags now.
