Early in 2017 Santos Organics funded Plastic Free Byron and their Borrow Bag program for tourists in the Byron Shire.
The initial concept however did not lift off as intended due to problems tourist facilities had with bag up-keep and maintenance.
As such the Plastic Free Byron team revised the program and are trialling the new system with Byron Central Apartments. Every apartment will have a reusable bag available for their visitors.
After the 4 week trial Plastic Free Byron will open up this program to other tourist facilities as well in hope that 2018 can be the year that Byron Bay no longer needs plastic bags!
