Ghost Net Shopping Bags

Two major issues, plastic in the environment and people choosing to use single-use plastic shopping bags, are addressed with this innovative source reduction plan. Ghost nets are a prolific concern in the Far North of Queensland. Why not replace your single-use plastic shopping bags with a bag made out of ghost nets? Although this solution does not address the source of the ghost nets it reduces the amount of single-use plastic shopping bags being used which have the potential to be released to the environment. It also recycles the plastic ghost net materials, diverting them from landfill. Ghost net bags are available from the Tangaroa Blue Foundation Sea Store in custom sizes; all proceeds go to funding more beach clean-ups in Cape York!
