The NRA have been travelling across Queensland over the past few months helping retailers prepare for the plastic bag ban.
We recently met with retailers in the Cairns region (including Cairns, Port Douglas and Innisfail) and were impressed with local businesses either not using plastic bags at all or preparing to transition away from banned bags.
Here are just a few examples…
Splish Splash Swimwear
Yasmin @ Splish Splash Swimwear shows off their eye-catching reusable and paper bags when we recently visited their Cairns and Port Douglas stores.
Community Enterprise Queensland
Rob Wilson @ Community Enterprise Queensland (CEQ) met with the NRA in Cairns to discuss their plans for replacing lightweight plastic bags at their 24 remote grocery stores across Far North QLD and Torres Strait.
The team @ Malone’s Butchery in Port Douglas are passionate about high quality produce and are changing over to paper bags in the lead-up to the QLD bag ban.
Reilly & the team @ Woolworths in Innisfail are now offering a large range of reusable bags.
Red Cross Shops
Red Cross Shops are phasing out plastic bags and selling paper or reusable bags, as the NRA team saw in their Cairns store.
How is your business managing the plastic bag ban?
