Plastic-Free July

Calling All Sewing Folk!

8 May 2017

Want to help make a difference?

The Council’s Waste Minimisation Team in conjunction with Balclutha New World, Dunedin Curtain Bank and the Clutha Change Collective are supporting Plastic-Free July.

How? By making cloth bags out of old curtain material and giving them away as shopping bags at Balclutha New World during the month of July.

We have the material, what we need now is the sewing army.

If you can help out during May and June and want to know more contact our Waste Minimisation Officer Steve Clarke on:

steve.clarke@cluthadc.govt.nz or 03 419 0293 or 0800 801 350

We've already had few offers from sewers but would love to hear from more of you.

Thanks in advance

Clutha District Council
