Eco would like all pictures and finished bags to come along to Whiting Bay Hall for Saturday 12th where will display all the pictures and the bags at our Zero waste and Big Arran Feast event.
At 4pm the winning bag designers will be awarded their prizes along with all other Arran entries.
This will be filmed (where permitted) by Positive pictures who will be filming during the whole day to produce 4 short films to raise awareness of Eco Savvy and zero waste Arran. It is intended to have the films uploaded to you tube and the Eco Savvy website will post the links. The film can also be assembled on DVD.
