Noosa businesses are being urged to “bag” some information on their responsibilities under Queensland’s looming state-wide ban on light-weight plastic shopping bags, due to come into effect from July next year.

The NRA will be in Noosa on Monday 30 October touring local shopping centres and providing a free workshop for retailers preparing for the impending plastic bag ban.

The NRA has joined forces with Local member for Noosa, Glen Elmes MP, to provide a free Plastic Bag Ban Workshop on Monday 30 October at 5.30pm in Noosa Heads.

NRA Manager of Industry Policy David Stout said that it is vital that all businesses are up to speed with their responsibilities now in order to be well-prepared for next year’s ban.

“The new laws apply to all retailers regardless of size or type – from supermarkets to fashion boutiques, from fast food outlets to petrol stations.

“All retail businesses currently using plastic bags face important business decisions over the next few months, Mr Stout said.

The NRA will be touring the following shopping centres on Monday 30 October:

  • Noosa Civic Shopping Centre 9am – 10.30am
  • Noosa Village Shopping Centre 11am – 12pm
  • Bay Village on Hastings 1pm – 2pm
  • Noosa Fair Shopping Centre 2pm – 3pm


All businesses are welcome at the free Plastic Bag Ban Workshop on Monday evening:

Upstairs Lounge At ‘The J’

5.30pm – 6.30pm
