Wymondham High School's green team are aiming to make the town the first in south Norfolk to be plastic free.
They are inviting traders to meet them to discuss the campaign on Tuesday (7pm) at the school.
The students have produced a video showing the harm that plastic bags can do and have gained the support of South Norfolk Council chairman Joe Mooney, Norfolk County Council leader Daniel Cox, Wymondham mayor Len Elston and local town councillors.

More than £2,000 in grants have been secured, some of which will be spent on cotton bags to showcase what people could be using.
This will complement the sale of jute bags at Wymondham Farmers' Market. Reusable jute and cotton bags are also available from Wymondham library, Wymondham Health Foods shop, the Abbey shop and the Co-op. Waitrose also sells 'bags for life'.
