We have started a plastic bag free project in the city of Kerava in Finland in April this year. I have personally planned the idea as well as the implementation strategy and now there is a very active team of people working towards this goal. We are proud as a society to become the first plastic bag free city in Finland and Europe. We are grateful to our commercial partners which are the main Finnish grocery store chains and all other brands and players and smaller shops in Kerava. Go Kerava Go!
