Plastic Bag Free Raglan (PBFR) was launched by the Whaingaroa Environment Centre in 2016 and has been driven by a steering committee made up of members from the Whaingaroa Environment Centre (WEC), Xtreme Zero Waste (XZW), the Raglan Chamber of Commerce, Para Kore and the Raglan Community Board.
The mission of Plastic Bag Free Raglan is to create a plastic shopping bag free Whaingaroa Raglan. We aim to do this by inspiring Whaingaroa residents, business owners and visitors to be more conscious of their environmental impact by supporting reusable shopping bags within our community.
Our goal is to make Whaingaroa Raglan Plastic Shopping Bag Free by 2019.
Plastic Bag Free Raglan has been supported in part by the Raglan Chamber of Commerce, Raglan Community Board, Waikato District Council, Waikato Regional Council, Whaingaroa Environmental Centre, Xtreme Zero Waste and Meridian Energy.
