From 1 July 2018, lightweight single-use plastic bags will be banned statewide in Western Australia.

Boomerang Bags are popping up in local shopping centres, plastic straws are falling fast out of favour (heard of The Last Straw campaign?), disposable coffee cups are attracting a surcharge (who could forget ABC’s War on Waste tram full of coffee cups!) and of course beeswax wraps instead of plastic cling wrap!

The City of Joondalup’s Staff Development Day (pictured), featured workshops preparing for the Plastic Bag Ban. Our DIY Beeswax Wrap workshop combined with Boomerang Bags and all things worm farm and compost, means this group has made a great start!

Newbies and greenies mixed freely – grating wax, ironing and getting to know each other. For this large organisation, it was an epic 2 day team building event!
