Calling all creative gardeners! QLD Garden Expo competition reminds Queenslanders to BYO bag from 1 July

With Queenslanders currently estimated to use over 1 billion single-use, lightweight plastic bags per year — most of which end up in landfill and the balance in our natural environment — it’s great news that the plastic shopping bag as we know it, will be no more from 1 July this year.

Given the Queensland Garden Expo will open its gates within days of the ban being enforced, event organisers have decided to put the spotlight firmly on resusable bags of any kind by launching their inaugural ‘Garden in a Bag’ competition at this year’s event being hosted at the Nambour Showgrounds from 13-15 July.
