As part of their effort to spread the message about reducing landfill waste by using re-usable shopping bags, the Golden Bay Bag Ladies—in conjunction with the Green Teens of Nelson—have created an exhibition of hand-painted cloth bags. There are some wonderful creations from all different people including young children, professional artists, sports people, families….

The physical exhibition has been to Te Papa, New Zealand’s national museum, and will be coming to The Wholemeal Café in Takaka, Golden Bay this week. If you’re in Takaka, swing by the Wholemeal and check it out at 60 Commercial Street, Takaka, Golden Bay.

All the Golden Bay bags will be auctioned at the upcoming Totally Local market in Golden Bay.
