Plastic bags have a long-lasting impact on the environment and pose a threat to Manly’s fragile ecosystem. Especially Manly’s little penguins are affected. Two penguins have been found trapped in plastic bags and were close to drowning.
By avoiding the use of plastic bags we can have a positive effect on Manly’s environment.

We can reduce the use of non-renewable natural resources. We can stop that littered plastic bags blow into the ocean and get swallowed by mammals and seabirds. We can ban plastic bags in Manly.
