The problem of plastic pollution is escalating at an alarming rate, causing significant issues for our valuable marine wildlife.
The upcoming NSW by-elections present the perfect opportunity to bring marine plastic pollution to the forefront of the political agenda.
The time to act is now and we have put together a powerful ad containing the stance of all by-State elections candidates on plastic bag bans. We only have a few days to get this ad in local newspapers and we need your help!
Example of an ad that we want to publish in the North Shore Times
It is critical that we seize this moment and increase the pressure on our local politicians and the current NSW Government. Please donate $40 to help us publish our ads in the North Shore Times, the Manly Daily and the Central Coast Express Advocate this week. Help us make our campaign impossible to ignore!
Every donation over $2 is tax deductible.

Did you know that 52% of the world's sea turtles have ingested plastic or other human rubbish? Last year, 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!
At the end of June, the environment ministers will be coming together for their regular meeting. We want their main focus to be a ban on lightweight single use plastic bags throughout Australia. In order for this to happen, we need to urgently mobilise and support our 50 allied plastic bag-free groups.
Please chip in today to help us win, it would save countless turtles, whales, birds and other marine life from harm.
Every donation $2 and over is tax deductible.
