Dee Tipping, Diana Ricketts (Byron United) and Trude Helm are taking to the streets as the BYO Bag Babes.
‘There is no mystery about what you have to do to be a BYO Bag Babe, or a BYO Bag Bloke for that matter,’ said Ms Tipping, founder of the ‘Say No to Plastic Bag Campaign’ in 2003.
The ladies will be visiting businesses and markets over the next few weeks for signed support to the ‘Say no to plastic bag’ month of January.
Ms Tipping said, ‘By creating less plastic waste and being more mindful of how we dispose of it we can set an example’.
