Gillian said Tilba was part of the global movement to rid the world of plastic bags, the number of which used each year could circle the equator 37 times.

“We see the end result down at the beach,” she said.

“So from all of us well done. This is a brave move and it’s not going to be easy but you’ve done it really stylishly with this bag.”

As part of the initiative, students at Central Tilba Public School were asked to draw artwork discouraging the use of disposable plastic bags.

The winner was Year 4 student Angela Garrad with her drawing stating “Plastic kills when it gets in their gills!”
