We are investigating how to promote this on social media. Ideas include linking "Plastic Wise Benalla' on the BSFG website and setting up our own facebook page. BSFG will be the overarching body for our Group, Plastic Wise Benalla. We have our own logo which is based around that used in by the Indigo Shire Groups.
Jason, Fabio Industries, has screen printed our first batch of pockets for free. And the Council have provided us with a room at the Drill Hall for free for bag making sessions each fortnight for the next 2 months.
It is great that we are creating some community action about this issue and some wonderful helpers have been recruited. We have started off small just to get ourselves organised. We have several people who are very willing to sew at home which is great.
Any donations of heavy duty fabric, curtains/tablecloths, and not so heavy duty (for a contrast), and calico will be gratefully accepted.
