It has been several years since legislation in South Australia was put in place to reduce the amount of plastic bags used at supermarkets and other retail outlets. Marine biologists have found residual plastic bags in places as far away as Antarctica.
Additionally, more recent research has shown many fish in areas of the world have micro plastic particles within them, which is passing through the food chain, and may be ingested by humans.
Recently UC Invest ordered a new batch of reusable UC Invest branded bags designed to keep perishables cooler until they are refrigerated at home.
They have now been delivered to our address. Please feel free to ask for a complimentary bag or two if you are visiting, and do your bit to reduce the need to produce and use plastic bags.
