Plastic Shopping Bag Ban
Most of you may have already heard that there is going to be a BAN on Plastic Shopping Bags starting July 1, 2018. As we all know Plastic bags have done a lot of harm to our environment, it has endangered the marine and other wildlife  and is very costly to clean up each year. Time to pull out your re-useable bags or run out and grab your supplies from your retailers. Lets save our Planet! For more information on what bags are banned and what are not, click this link for more information: QLD - Plastic Bag Ban
