Grey Lynn Shops supporting Plastic FREE July

There is great community and business support to go plastic bag free, but to make a long- term change, we need everyone’s support and participation. We are working hard to provide several alternatives for others:

  1. Branded Plastic Bag Free Grey Lynn re-usable bags are now available around the village. Retailers can sell them for $5, which will support “Sew Grey Lynn” continuing making reusable bags.
  2. Fabric bags will be available to borrow (and then return in the Boomerang Bag style) if people have forgotten to bring a reusable bag. We are working out where in the village these will be – Shop owners, please let us know if you want some to be available at your premises.
  3. Many retailers already use boxes/paper bags and sell or giveaway their own re-usable bags.
  4. We encourage customers to “Bring Your Own Bag” (BYO Bag).

Have a look at some of the shop window displays for Plastic FREE July. Grey Lynn, let’s just do this!
