Did you know that 52% of the world's sea turtles have ingested plastic or other human rubbish? Recently the Australian Senate Inquiry into marine plastic pollution warned of a ‘looming health crisis’ from eating seafood and ingesting the bioaccumulation of plastic and adhered toxic chemicals.
This has to stop!
The good news is, we are definitely making progress. Last year, the Queensland government announced a plastic bag ban and a Cash for Containers scheme for the state. We know that the Queensland community overwhelmingly support both these measures. It’s now time to put these initiatives into action, and to make that happen we need an Act of Parliament NOW.
A State election must happen in the next 12 months, so it is essential that both Cash for Containers and a plastic bag ban are legislated before then. If not, the plan to introduce both schemes into Queensland in July 2018 will simply not happen.
Help us get the Queensland Parliament to vote for a cash for containers and plastic bag ban. A donation of just $40 will help win every single MP's vote.
Because if this does not happen, who knows what the next election will bring.
Let’s Make Queensland a leader in litter and plastic pollution reduction, and show the laggard States like NSW and Victoria how to do it!
