Dee Taminiau, Ballina

We have the means to go plastic free! Why is Coles still selling strong plastic bags that never break down? The garbage bag aisle sells rolls of bags, of which one is a roll of the same bags we had our shopping packed in.

I wish we would take a more serious approach to such a serious matter. We haven’t gone plastic free with our shopping at all. What a farce!


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
