Plastic free winner

Congratulations to the winner of our Plastic Free July competition, Myra Dost, who suggests totally refusing to use plastic bags, even as rubbish bin liners. “All bins are made out of plastic, they do not need an extra layer of plastic. When the bin is full, tip the rubbish out, then clean your bin and you’re good to go. It only takes a minute and you’re saving the environment at the same time.

Thanks to everyone for sending in your ideas to reduce plastic, including making the kids in charge of remembering the reusable bags when you go shopping and implementing sustainability ratings on packaging so consumers can make a more informed choice.

There were some great ideas out there and it’s great to start looking at easy ways to cut down.

Thanks to the Waipa District Council for supplying the prize, and well done, Myra.
