Australians want and deserve clean, healthy oceans that are full of life. But plastic is polluting our oceans and choking whales, dolphins and turtles. We can ensure that plastic pollution will not find its way into our oceans, by stopping it at the source.
Let’s urge our government to commit to banning harmful single-use plastics by 2023. Let’s stop those items that are used once and yet pollute forever – the plastic bags, bottles, microbeads, straws, cutlery – from entering our waterways and reaching our oceans.
Around the world, nations are acting on reducing plastic pollution by setting targets and banning plastics – but Australia is falling behind. We want Australia to be a leader in turning the tide on plastic pollution.
Inaction isn’t an option when our oceans are choking on single-use plastics. Sign the petition for a ban on single-use plastics and turn the tide on plastic pollution today!
