Plastic Free July 

- successful day in Woolies promoting reusable cloth produce bags.
Woolies kindly gave us permission to hold a stall inside their store in Wangaratta last Friday July 19, to promote for Plastic Free July the use of reusable, washable fruit & veggie bags.
The ladies from Boomerang Bags had been busy sewing them & well over 100 were sold, and many positive conversations had with shoppers with Ann Brain, MaryAnn Sargent & Donna Hutchinson.
As this was such a success we hope to do it again.


This is an opportunity for us all to refocus on the amount of single use plastic in our daily lives, to set new goals for reducing it, & to learn & share new alternatives.
