How You Can Help End Plastic Bags in Australia

The campaign against plastic single use plastic bags in Australia is gaining momentum, and the people who can really make a difference - politicians - will be hearing all about it for the next couple of weeks. Calls for Australia to join France, China, Morocco and others in a simple ban are growing - and Tasmania, SA and the NT have brought in independent bags already. Among those agitating for the ban are home grown Boomerang Bags and one million women, a global climate change movement.

So what can you do?

  • Thursday 17 November - Got some free time tomorrow? Join Jeff Angel (Director of the Boomerang Alliance) at his media conference at 10.30am in The Domain to call on Environment Ministers to take action on plastic bags at their upcoming meeting. 
  • Sunday 4 December - Head to Manly Beach for the Ocean care day Seaside Scavenge - the market where you can trade TRASH for second-hand clothes, shoes, jewellery and more.
  • Write - Join one million women's campaign and tell your political representatives what you think
