plastic free torquay
“Every piece of plastic that has ever been made is still in existence and this makes Plastic Pollution a serious issue; some say more serious than Climate Change.”
The mission of Plastic bag free Torquay is simple… “to create a community in Torquay and beyond of conscientious businesses and consumers who are proud of the beauty we have and are prepared to do something to protect that beauty. We aim to stop the Free Distribution of Single Use Plastic Bags in Torquay by December 31st, 2015.”
I like to call the beautiful town of Torquay my home and I raise my four happy healthy children here along with my husband Wade. This is a place I treasure and love. This is a place my family treasure and love. We work here, play here, make memories here. It is our home. Why wouldn’t we want to do something for the greater good of Torquay and our environment!
At Earth Bottles we also like to encourage using a sustainable product and to stop the one time use plastic bottles. We allow people to be a part of our bigger picture and allow them to ‘do their little bit’ – it becomes easy! Same goes with plastic bags. Yes you have to be more organised, you may need to have a reusable bag in the car in case you go to the shops but it can be done!
Many shops in Torquay are also stocking “boomerang bags” for people to borrow and bring back if they forget their own reusable bag. That way there is no excuse!
Many businesses have jumped on board in support of Plastic Bay Free Torquay too!

And as they say…”from little things big things grow” or “many hands make light work”. Every little bit helps and this is also our mission at Earth Bottles – it’s something so simple, yet so powerful and it only takes you to make it happen.
