Support Builds for Moruya BYO Bag Campaign

Support for the Moruya’s business community’s campaign to reduce the use of plastic bags is building with council, business and the community getting behind the effort.

After the move by major supermarkets to stop handing out single use plastic bags Moruya businesses are encouraging shoppers to bring their own bags to all shops in the town.

To kickstart the project a community education campaign will begin in mid July.

Moruya Business Chamber President Jude Manahan says the campaign has been boosted with a grant from the Eurobodalla Shire Council for banners to be placed around the town.

“We also have major support from Southern Phone who will print and pay for the delivery of an educational flyer to all homes in the 2537 postcode,” she said.

As part of the consultation process executive members of the Moruya Business Chamber have talked with all businesses in Moruya known to currently provide plastic bags to customers.

“There is overwhelming support in our business community for this project that has obvious benefits for our environment,” she said.

“Moruya is a caring, environmentally aware community and our businesses reflect those values,” she said.

“So Moruya businesses will work with shoppers to help them move to a plastic bag free future with the goal to see Moruya free of plastic bags.
