Let's lead the way in NZ and be the first 'one-use plastic-bag free' city in the country!
Let's join together to ask Mayor Lianne Dalziel & her council to ban one-use plastic bags in the city (starting with the new retail precinct in the CBD).
Why is this important?
Samoa and 29 other countries have banned them...now it's time for our redesigned city Otautahi-Christchurch to lead the way in NZ.
NZers send an estimated one BILLION plastic bags to landfill annually.
Scientists estimate it takes 1000 years (yes, you read that right) for plastic bags to degrade and during that process toxins are leached and particles can get into the food chain.
