Australia’s Government is considering a ban on single-use plastics! Show support by signing the petition.
We all 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 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. South Australia, Queensland and the ACT are leading the way with proposed laws to ban killer plastic like straws and stirrers.
Momentum is building – we need every State and Territory working together to pass nationally consistent laws and save our turtles, whales and seabirds.
Inaction isn’t an option when our oceans are choking on single-use plastics.
