Plastic bag free Grey Lynn

Local resident Barbara Grace, a member of Grey Lynn 2030 Waste Away group, would like to see Grey Lynn plastic bag free as a step towards NZ dramatically reducing the amount of waste that ends up in the ocean causing environmental harm.

To encourage her neighbours to take reusable shopping bags with them she has put together a bag installation in her shop window at 101 Richmond Road.
