The new Port Douglas reusable bag has finally arrived and is now out in the community helping to reduce the use of plastic bags as part of our Think Outside the Bag campaign. Making its debut at the official launch to help with the campaign was the Plastic Bag Monster. Did you know the average household collects an estimated 500 plastic bags per year? Stay tuned for the next appearance of the Plastic Bag Monster in town near you!
We are also excited to announce that currently 22 businesses in the Port Douglas area have gone plastic bag free with more businesses in transition. Any business that would like to join the campaign are encouraged to contact Mindi Tonak, Project Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
