On display is a mural made by Waiheke Primary School students about plastic marine pollution. Educational visit: BYO Bag Waiheke's Jennifer Fountain, right, was invited to Matiu/Somes Island in Wellington Harbour by DOC ranger Jo Greenman to publicise plastic bag pollution in the oceans. Jennifer is holding some plastic she found washed up on the island's beach. DO YOUR BIT Jennifer says: ''If one person stops using single- use disposable shopping bags, in one year they take 500 to 700 bags out of the waste stream, out of the environment. That's a really positive change any one of us can make.'' Go to waihekemarket place.co.nz and click on Latest Edition to see Stephanie Bennett's new video about the BYO Bag Waiheke Island initiative. The message to bring your own bag'' is gaining momentum after Wai- heke started an initiat- ive to tackle plastic pol- lution. BYO Bag Waiheke Island co-founder Jenni- fer Fountain has just returned from a visit to Matiu/Somes Island, a reserve managed by the Department of Conser- vation in Wellington har- bour. She was invited by DOC ranger Jo Green- man to help visitors to the island learn more about how throw-away plastic can affect the marine environment. Ms Greenman had heard plastic pollution expert Dianna Cohen talk on National Radio about the Waiheke Island campaign to stop the use of disposable plastic bags. The campaign started early this year with a BYO Bag sewing group in the Rocky Bay hall. Bags were sewn by volunteers and given out to residents. An art exhibition fol- lowed and the campaign has continued, with sev- eral shops pledging to go plastic bag free or encourage their custom- ers to think about other options. And residents have been trying re- usable bags instead of using plastic ones. Ms Greenman and Ms Fountain created a weekend programme for visitors to Matui/Somes Island. Ms Fountain took along several of Dianna Cohen's large plastic artworks as well as an art mural made by Wai- heke Primary School children. Visitors were given information and shown a video about the BYO Bag movement on Waiheke. I also visited Kahu- tara Primary School in Martinborough on the way down to Wellington and did two days of chil- dren's art workshops on Matiu/Somes,'' Ms Foun- tain says. The really exciting thing is that 30 girl guides from Whitby came to do the art work- shop and saw the infor- mation. Now they are going to start their own BYO Bag sewing group.'' Ms Fountain says the young workshop partici- pants loved the Waiheke children's mural, depict- ing how plastic can pol- lute the sea and its inhabitants. It was a big hit. The children really took inspiration from it. A lot of them did murals about giant weta, tuatara and penguins and seals -- that's what they want to protect from plastic pol- lution. The local iwi who own Matui/Somes also want to get more involved in fighting plastic pollution in the future, so I'll prob- ably be going back.''
