The NRA have been travelling across Queensland over the past few months helping retailers prepare for the plastic bag ban.

We have met with thousands of retailers in the Brisbane metro region and love talking with local businesses either not using plastic bags at all or preparing to transition away from banned bags.

Here are just a few examples…
