We’re happy to announce that Niue is banning single use plastic bags on the island. The announcement comes on International Plastic Bag Free Day 2018. Over the next 12 months single use plastic bags will be gradually phased out and replaced with reusable bags.
We've been proudly working with Niue Tourism and other various partner agencies and organisations behind the scenes to help make this happen, including developing branding for the overarching identity - Sustainable Niue.
It’s just one of Niue’s many conservation efforts as it aims to become more sustainable. The ban on single use plastic bags is just the first step, with many more environmental initiatives planned in the next few years.
