The last straws… plastic that is!
We helped build momentum in the fight against single-use plastics.
In late 2018 members of the Uptown Business Association united to became the first precinct to declare a plastic straw ban in the Auckland supercity. Before the ban cafes and restaurants un Uptown used half a million straws a year.
The initiative attracted national media attention and support from the wider community. We were all pleased to make such a positive move a reality.
