SIGN THE PETITION TO CUT PLASTIC PACKAGING BY 20% AND INTRODUCE A 30% REUSABLE PACKAGING TARGET
Demand an ambitious national packaging solution to turn the tide on plastic.
Plastic is everywhere and in everything – found in our rivers, air and along our beaches; in fish, seabirds and in the food we eat.
The amount of plastic entering our oceans every year is going to triple by 20401 because not enough is done to cut plastic waste and pollution2.
"Australia generates more single-use plastic waste per person than any other country except Singapore" - Minderoo Foundation, Plastic Wastemaker Index.
Australia's environment ministers have agreed to an ambitious packaging reform, with federal Minister Tanya Plibersek calling for a "Plastic-Pollution-Free Pacific in our lifetimes" – committing to world leading regulation in 2024.
But it won’t occur without cutting the amount of plastic we use in the first place.
TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN, WE URGENTLY NEED YOUR SUPPORT.
Will you sign the petition for a National Plastic Reduction Target?
Alongside our partners, allies and supporters, we have developed a world leading packaging solution which we'd like to see adopted.
The new scheme will make producers reduce plastic and pay for the collection & recovery of their packaging.
