    SUPtember

    As part of the Boomerang Alliance Zero Plastic Pollution Campaign, we are launching SUPTEMBER! A whole month dedicated to getting rid of Single Use Plastics by inspiring and mobilising our supporters to take action. 

     

    TAKE ACTION

    SUPTEMBER CALENDAR

    Visit our SUPtember Calendar where every day for 30 days, you will be challenged to take a pledge or a small action to refuse Single Use Plastic items. If you have young children, you may like to visit the Ocean Action Pod SUPtember Calendar also, where your kids can challenge themselves to be Ocean Action Heroes. 

    If you're a busy person, just do what you can. Every small action matters!

    Take on the challenge


    SEND A GRATITUDE CARD 

    Are there cafes or restaurants in your local area who have done the right thing and got rid of single-use plastic cutlery/coffee cups/straws/take away containers? Send them Gratitude cards to let them know that their effort hasn't gone unnoticed and is much appreciated. They can stick it on their wall as a badge of honour too!

    The cards come in a pack of 10 or 25 and can be bought from our online store.

    Buy a pack of Gratitude cards | More Information & FAQs


    SEND A BE THE CHANGE CARD

    If your local cafes or restaurants are still using single-use plastic items, why not send them Be the Change cards to encourage them to switch to reusable or compostable alternatives. You can also point them to our Covid-19 Plastic Free Guide which will help them choose the right products. 

    The cards come in a pack of 10 or 25 and can be bought from our online store.

    BOOMERANG ALLIANCE Good SUP, Bad SUP Cards - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

     

    What are you trying to achieve with your SUP cards?

    The aim of our Good SUP, Bad SUP cards is to make it easy for community members to express gratitude to businesses making an effort to go Single-Use Plastic (Bad SUP) free or to politely encourage businesses who are still using Single-Use Plastics to make the switch to re-usable or compostable. Two good examples of Re-usable options include Green Caffeen and Globelet.
    For single-use items look for accredited compostable items that will have the Australian Standard AS5810 (home compostable) or AS4736 (commercial compostable) on the label.

     

    How do people use the SUP Gratitude Cards?

    If you know a local business that has taken action to reduce or remove Single Use Plastics (bad SUPs) eg plastic straws, plastic cutlery or polystyrene, simply give them a Boomerang Alliance 'SUP Gratitude card' with a personal thank you message and share the news with Boomerang Alliance and your friends on social media. These businesses deserve our support and are leading the way in what will hopefully become the norm and help put an end to plastic pollution. The card is designed so that they can display it on their counter or wall, to share the love and thank their customers for their support.

     

    How do people use the SUP Be the Change Cards?

    If you know a local business that is using Single-Use Plastics (bad SUPs) eg plastic straws, plastic cutlery or polystyrene you can give them a Boomerang Alliance 'SUP Be the Change' card to encourage them to make the change to re-usable or compostable alternatives. The card has the Plastic Free Places website address on it to help them find out more about the alternatives and the greenwash products to be avoided. Check it out yourself: https://www.plasticfreeplaces.org/

    We know businesses like cafes and restaurants are busy places and staff often don't have time for a chat so a card can be referred to later when they have time. If they receive cards from several people they will know their customers will support them taking action and appreciate their efforts to reduce plastic pollution.

     

    Can we make our own posters or signs to promote the message to Wise Up to SUP's?

    YES! We would love you to do that. You can download the front and back pages of the Gratitude card and the Be the Change card here (right click on the image and save it in your computer):

     

    Gratitude Card

     

    Be the Change Card

     

    What if Cafes receive several or lots of cards?

    Ideally that is exactly what will happen. In communities where the cards are available ....and the community is engaged in the campaign... businesses may receive multiple cards. That's great!

    If they receive multiple Be the Change cards then we hope that will provide the encouragement that they need to re-think their next order of bad SUPs, look at the Plastic Free Places website, seek advice if needed (Plastic Free Places now offer 45minute consultations) and ask their suppliers for non plastic alternatives - knowing that their customers will notice and thank them for helping reduce potential plastic pollution.

     

    Can we send you some feedback or suggestions for using the SUP cards?

    YES! Your suggestions are most welcome. If you have come up with a good way to spread the bad SUP message please let us know so we can share it with others.
    You can email [email protected] with any feedback.

    Plastic Free Townsville launches today

    The Boomerang Alliance Plastic Free Townsville program was officially launched today (6 August, 2020) by Queensland Minister for the Environment, Leeanne Enoch. The program is funded by the Queensland Government, and supports the State Government's agenda to eliminate plastic takeaway litter and waste.

  • Container Refund Schemes - Charity and NFP Charter

    We believe that the primary objectives of a Container Refund Scheme (CRS) should include:

    • Grow community benefits by providing sustainable income to charities and other NFP community organisations
    • Significantly reduce litter from beverage containers
    • Increase recycling of containers
    • Create new jobs and business opportunities in resource recovery

  • published Reusable Containers 2020-06-29 09:18:10 +1000

    Reusable Containers

    Our aim is to rapidly accelerate adoption of reusable and refillable foodware and containers by product providers, business and consumers. Apart from avoiding single use plastics in the first place, the next best solution is to reuse containers. This eliminates waste and ensures containers stay in use for as long as possible.

    We have identified five scenarios on which to focus. Whilst food safety standards do prevent unmanaged reusable container use, properly designed services are available and active in Australia and around the world that show it can be done.

    The International Standard (ISO 1860:2013) outlines the requirements of reusable packaging to reduce its environmental footprint (compared to single use) and be designed to achieve a minimum number of trips or rotations.

     

    Our Goals

    1. Events

      • All public events to adopt reusable/refillable foodware policies that support reusables and, where possible, incorporate reusable/returnable container services into operations.

      • Every national, state, local jurisdiction should include reusable/refillable foodware policies for any events they manage or for any events that require permits or funding support (by 2021).

      • Reusable Foodware policies for events should be based upon a continuous improvement approach and initially focus on the use of reusable/returnable/refillable foodware provision by event organisers and vendors and the introduction of reusable/returnable containers for product transport by suppliers.

    2. Takeaway outlets

      • Food outlets allow/ initiate customer returnable/refillable services for takeaway food and drink

    3. Supermarkets/retail

      • Major supermarkets to introduce returnable/refillable container service for their customers to access delicatessen and identified other food services by 2021.

    4. Specific controlled environments

      • All government office precincts (that include food outlets) to introduce (or include in new or renewed vendor contracts) a requirement to allow/promote returnable/refillable foodware services or earlier with agreement of vendors. (Other office precincts are encouraged to implement similar requirements)
      • Other locations (e.g. universities, public institutions) to initiate returnable/refillable service and networks where under management control.

    5. Transport (ISO 22984)

      • Manufacturers, retailers and transport logistics companies can introduce reusable/returnable containers for bulk deliveries now. These should be introduced coupled with investment and research to investigate further reusable/returnable container use in the future.

     


  • published Cut the Wrap 2020-06-29 09:17:24 +1000

    Cut the Wrap

    Our aim is to ensure that problematic and unnecessary single use plastic packaging is eliminated by supermarkets and other retailers. In keeping with the national target, all plastic packaging needs to be avoided where unnecessary or reused, composted or recycled.

    For any plastic packaged product to be labelled as reusable, compostable or recyclable, it must be able to demonstrate that it is indeed reused, composted or recycled.

    Boomerang Alliance is campaigning to ensure this happens and the national packaging goals for 2025 are met.

     

    Our Goals

    • All retailers to phase-out excessive plastic packaging, firstly of fresh food and vegetables by 2021, followed by other non-putrescible and ‘brand’ products (continuous improvement).

    • Where packaging cannot be avoided, by 2021, switch to packaging that will be reused, composted or recycled based upon accepted standards, at scale, across multiple regions.

    • Take action to eliminate unnecessary single-use packaging items through re-design, innovation or alternative packaging by 2021

    • Phase out polystyrene within 3 months

    • Remove single use plastics from outdoor activities/picnic sections and replace with reusable/compostable alternatives (reusable/certified compostable coffee cups, cups, plates, other foodware)

    • Introduce plastic free aisles/areas for fresh fruit and veg

    • Encourage the use of reusable containers at the butcher, deli, etc. and charge for disposable containers by 2021

    • Negotiate with suppliers on their use of plastic packaging to eliminate unnecessary packaging

    • Set new requirements for internal bulk supplies that reduce plastic packaging waste through reusable/returnable supply containers and ensuring that all discarded packaging is composted or recycled

      Note: see Reusable Containers page for further information on standards

  • published Policies for Action 2020-06-29 09:16:02 +1000

    Policies for Action

    Our aim is the introduction of legislation and financial supports to solve Australia's plastic pollution problems – creating a 'circular economy'. Action needs to be mainstream – not pilots and case studies that work at the edge of society and the economy.

    Like many jurisdictions around the world, Australia has committed to a target of all packaging being either reusable, compostable or recyclable by 2025. Achieving this means focusing on avoiding and reducing unnecessary single use plastics; and reusing, composting or recycling the rest. The landfilling, incineration or energy recovery of plastic wastes is rejected by Boomerang and key experts and jurisdictions as part of a circular economy approach.

     

    Our Goals

    1. A strengthened Product Stewardship Act 2011 to specifically address plastic packaging and mandate national targets.

    2. Addressing greenwash labelling to ensure that all packaging labelled as reusable, compostable or recyclable will be reused, composted or recycled in practice and at scale.

    3. The phase-out of problematic and unnecessary plastics by supporting best practice legislation by state and territory jurisdictions, and continue the process, through continuous improvement, to deal with other problem plastics.

    4. A ban on the export of waste plastics, but coupled with the provision of Commonwealth and State investment in modernised composting and recycling facilities, and the setting of consistent recycled content procurement policies in all Australian jurisdictions.

    5. Ensuring circular economy principles, and practices are applied, in all national and state/territory waste policies and programs.

    6. The banning of plastic packaging from landfill, incinerators and waste-to-energy facilities before 2025 in all jurisdictions.

    7. Pressuring all jurisdictions to apply effective and consistent waste avoidance and resource recovery practices. This includes a particular focus on effective plastic bag bans (New South Wales and updating older laws in other states and addressing thicker bags) and best practice container refund schemes (Victoria and Tasmania).

    8. The introduction of a national/state-engaged Plastic Pollution Reduction Plan to address single use plastics in the home, away from home, in agriculture, in business and industry and in the marine environment, including a strategy of continuous improvement.

    9. Fund research into the extent, sources and impacts of plastics/micro-plastics on the environment and human and wildlife health. This should include the establishment of citizen science programs that add to scientific understanding and litter data collection.

    10. Increase funding support for marine and litter clean-ups. Support Commonwealth direct involvement and resourcing of global initiatives that reduce plastic use and litter generation. Assist regional neighbours with litter clean-up activities and economic development programs centred on plastics recovery and recycling.

    Zero Plastic Pollution

    'At least 8 million tonnes of plastic leak into the ocean every year. By 2025 the oceans will contain one tonne of plastic for every three tonnes of fish and by 2050 more plastic than fish' - Joint EM Foundation/World Economic Forum Report Davos 2016

    Globally 95% of all plastic packaging is used once and then wasted, often as litter. In Australia we recycle 9% of plastic (with just 16% of plastic packaging recovered). The CSIRO reports that 'three-quarters of the marine debris found along our coastline is plastic, most from local sources.'

    According to the latest CleanUp Australia Report (2019), plastic represents 31% of all litter collected. Plastic bag litter remains unacceptably high despite state (with the exception of NSW) and supermarkets bans. Heavyweight plastic bags are still available in all states and territories.

    Virtually all of this discarded plastic does not decompose but, over time, ‘breaks up’ into ever smaller pieces (microplastics). The marine plastic problem is both about the plastic litter we can see and the plastic litter we can’t. It accumulates in the environment, year on year.

    Australia needs to solve this problem, urgently. Over the next 24 months to 2022 we will be campaigning for governments to implement the legal and financial instruments to achieve a significant reduction in plastic pollution.

    Source: Clean Up Australia Report, 2019

     

    Our goals

    • To transition to a zero-waste society by leveraging strategic opportunities to drive best practice resource efficiency, recovery and recycling.

    • To eliminate unnecessary and problematic single use plastics from use.

    • To cut 70% of Australia’s contribution to plastic pollution entering the oceans (before 2025).

  • Boomerang Alliance Newsletter - March 2020

    March 2020
     
     

    Coronavirus aside we still need urgent and effective action to address plastic pollution, and Boomerang Alliance intends to continue its campaigning. It is important that governments act to reduce the spread and contain the virus, and, it's equally important that they act on plastics. Next year, we hope the virus will be a thing of the past, unfortunately plastic pollution won't be.

    The Plastic Round Up: What's been happening around the country to reduce Single-Use Plastics

    The good news is that a number of State and Territory Governments are starting to act. As a result, we expect some States and Territories to have brought in legislation or planned legislation by the end of 2020, to phase-out certain single use plastic takeaway items. It's not enough but it is a start.

    Here's our round up of what happening state-by state.

    South Australia is introducing legislation to ban plastic straws, stirrers and cutlery, including polystyrene cups, bowls, plates and containers. Assuming the legislation is passed, these items will be banned from 2021.

    The Australian Capital Territory has similar legislation to ban plastic cutlery, stirrers and polystyrene food and beverage containers by 2021 and, within 12 months of the legislation, barrier bags, oxo-degradable products and plastic straws.

    Queensland proposes legislation to ban plastic straws, stirrers, cutlery and plates and following further analysis, coffee cups, cups and heavyweight plastic bags. Assuming legislation is passed, straws, stirrers, cutlery and plates will be banned from 2021

    New South Wales has just released a Public Discussion Paper Cleaning Up Our Act: Redirecting the Future of Plastics in NSW. The paper signals that, at last, the government is seeking to ban lightweight plastic bags. Otherwise the paper seeks public views of what action the government should be taking including the phase-out of single use plastics

    Victoria is starting to catch up with other States having recently introduced a plastic bag ban and now announced a container deposit scheme for 2023. A Sustainability Strategy was recently introduced but it remains unclear what the government intends to do about single use plastics

    Western Australia has banned lightweight plastic bags and introduced a container deposit scheme. In 2019 a Lets not draw the short straw Discussion Paper was published that asked for public views on banning single use plastics. Nothing has been announced on single use plastics since.

    Tasmania introduced a plastic bag ban in 2013 and now plans a container deposit scheme by 2023. Apart from the city of Hobart which is planning to ban single use plastic takeaway items this year, the State Government has not announced any intended action.

    Northern Territory has a ban on lightweight plastic bags and a container deposit scheme. The Territory was an early adopter on both measures. We are not aware of any further measures on single use plastics by the government.

    Boomerang Alliance is encouraged by the policies of South Australia, ACT and Queensland. Our campaign is aimed at getting the best possible legislation in place and urgently lobbying all other jurisdictions to follow suit. We want single use plastics, starting with the most littered takeaway items, banned as soon as possible right across Australia.

    We appreciate all your support in our campaigns for zero plastic pollution.

    SUP NETWORK NEWS

    There are exciting developments around the country when it comes to changes in law to reduce Single Use Plastics (the bad SUPs, we love the good ol' Stand Up Paddleboard!). Find out what we are doing to lobby for change. 

       
     
    HAVE YOUR SAY - Reducing Single Use Plastics

    The New South Wales Government has released its Cleaning Up Our Act - Redirecting the Future of Plastics in NSW Discussion Paper and the Queensland Government has announced plans to introduce legislation to phase out certain plastic products. 

    Take action now and email your submission, the more submissions that support a single use plastics phase-out, the more likely it is to happen.

  • Plastic Free South Australia Project Launch

    On Saturday 14th December 2019. Hon. David Speirs MP, Minister for Environment and Water, launched the Plastic Free SA project.

    At the launch, South Australia’s first 'Plastic Free Champion' Brick + Mortar Creative, was identified using the Boomerang Alliance's Plastic Free Places guidelines. On hand with the Minister was Boomerang Alliance Director, Jeff Angel, Taryn Hansen, Plastic Free SA Coordinator and Elizabeth Donaldson, Brick + Mortar Creative Director.

    Plastic Free Champions are those cafes who have eliminated plastic coffee cups/lids, straws, foodware (cutlery, cups etc), takeaway containers, thick plastic bags and plastic water bottles. They provide reusable foodware instead, and where they can’t, 100% certified compostable packaging.

    The Minister also took the opportunity to release the draft Single-use and Other Plastic Products (Waste Avoidance) Bill 2019 for public comment. This proposes a ban on plastic straws, stirrers and cutlery and certain other single use plastics in South Australia. Comments are sought by 7 February 2020.

    A Boomerang Alliance Backgrounder.

    According to global data, 95% of single use plastic packaging is used once and then thrown away[1]. This single use plastic includes takeaway packaging. It also includes products used in horticulture, in industry and in the marine environment. Whilst many governments are getting more active on restricting plastic bags and some takeaway packaging, many other forms of single use plastics are going under the radar.
