Historic opportunity to ban the bag along the east coast

Together we could get a ban on single-use plastic bags along the Australian's east coast!

With your help, the plastic bag ban is on the agenda of the next Environment Minister meeting on 25 November but we need to keep up the pressure to make sure they make the right decision.  Yesterday we sent a demand to the ministers to finally resolve this urgent issue, from 50 environment and community groups representing hundreds of communities from around Australia.

We're making as much noise as we can: sending thousands of letters to the environment ministers, organising stalls at community event across the states, keeping the issue in the media, releasing plastic bags monsters in Sydney and delivering tote bags to the members of the NSW cabinet.

Please help us put pressure on them. Together we could save countless turtles, whales, birds and other marine life from harm.

> Victorian Environment Minister, Lily D'ambrosio (lily.d'ambrosio@parliament.vic.gov.au) or (03) 8392 2100

We believe succes in just around the corner.

    Lightweight single-use plastic bags are killing our wildlife and more. They MUST be banned in Victoria and the whole of Australia. Please do as Queensland has done.
    Thank you, Prue Carr
