Continuing Our Plastic Free July Campaign let’s keep focussing on avoiding single-use disposable plastic and take the challenge to eliminate it from our lives. This way we are choosing to be part of the solution.
Plastic has become a major threat to the health of our planet especially our oceans and our marine life. Watch the documentary Plastic Oceans to learn more. Our plastic waste is a deadly threat to marine life. Join us to make the market a plastic free place – many of our stalls are looking at options so that they can phase out plastic wrap and other plastic products.
The Gourmet Salad Hut is back this week with loads of kale so they are offering a super special – only $2 a bunch.
The Murwillumbah Community Men’s Shed is returning for the school holidays and then fortnightly thereafter now they have replenished their supplies.
