Event Description

We are a small group of plastic free enthusiasts working to free Thames of plastic bags, and reduce plastic use in general.

A world free of single-use plastic bags is an idea whose time has come – and in Thames it comes in July!

  • Saturday, July 1 – The Big GBD Sew-Up - In preparation for International Plastic Bag Free Day we will be holding a sewing bee in the Grahamstown Bar & Diner. Come along and sew up some cloth bags that will be freely available at participating shops on Plastic-Bag Free Day. We will also run a market stall on this day to promote the plastic bag free idea and showcase alternatives – including these reusable cloth bags.

  • July 3rd - International Plastic Bag Free Day - will feature events in Thames and other locations around NZ as well as the rest of the world.

If you are interested in getting involved in either of these events:

Its pretty straightforward.  When you sign up you'll be asked a few questions to make sure you're not a robot or some malevolent marketing tyrant somewhere exotic.

It will ask you for a picture - the site prefers JPG to all other formats.  However, you're not obliged to give one, and you'll be given a patchwork world image.  Quite fitting really!

If you've stopped getting emails from us (usually a news and events update every 2-3 weeks), its most likely you've changed your email address, and not told the site.  

You can update this by clicking on the little cog/Settings button (just above here, up by the photos of members) and this will take you to your page, and there's an option to change your email.
