In an effort to reduce the waste our community is producing, we have set out to establish a single-use plastic free Raglan.
The first of these initiatives was Plastic Bag Free Raglan, originally started by the Whaingaroa Environment Centre, Xtreme Zero Waste, the Raglan Chamber of Commerce, Para Kore and the Raglan Community Board.
The Plastic Bag Free Raglan movement encourages our community to be more conscious of their plastic bag use, and has further inspired them to look at their other single-use plastics, such as straws, bottles, coffee cups, etc.
As the Plastic Free Raglan movement evolves, we look forward to continuing our education of waste and waste reduction within our community and beyond.
Stay tuned to see what’s next for Plastic Free Raglan, and please, help keep our sea plastic free.
