Johnshaven’s environmental group SHARK recently held a competition for Johnshaven Primary School pupils to design a reusable bag as part of our initiative to reduce the use of plastic bags.
In over 10 years of beach cleans carried out by the group, they have picked up some 36000 pieces of plastic, mostly the remnants of supermarket plastic bags.
The overall design winner was Kelsea, whose crab design will be reproduced on SHARKS bags. Felix, gave the group a great slogan to use on the bag. Heather is holding her design which the group have decided to adopt as a new logo for SHARK, and can be seen on their website. The bags will be available later this year and one will be distributed free of charge to every household in Johnshaven.
