On Saturday November 18 from 9am, a gathering is planned on Byron’s Main Beach to spell ‘Ban The Bag NSW’ in the sand.
Co-organiser Kate Nelson from www.IQuitPlastics.com says, ‘NSW is the only state that has not banned single- use plastic bags.’
‘Whales have been washing up on beaches with bellies full of plastic. It’s past time to join the rest of the nation on this policy.
‘We need to be big in numbers, so our premier gets the message loud and clear!’
‘Take 3 Non-Profit is hosting a rally the same day down south in Bateau Bay from 10am, while Manly will host one on Ocean Care Day later this month.
‘Wear Blue. Help create change. Community activism works – look at the cash for containers campaign! Don’t let the dolphins, whales, turtles swallow any more plastic bags coming from our beautiful coastline.’
