As part of our campaign and to help increase political pressure we are asking you to write a letter to a newspaper editor of your choice.
Please express your concerns about the dangers of single use plastic bags. By spreading our message and adding a personal touch - you will make a difference!
If you have not written a letter to the editor before - here's a few helpful hints to get you started:
> Look up published Letters to the Editor in your chosen newspaper. This is a fantastic way to gauge the writing styles that appeal to that paper's editor.
> You should also check to see if the newspaper has guidelines for length and other various aspects.
> Use a personal story or illustration to explain why NSW, VIC and WA should ban the bag.

It’s time to take action. NSW, VIC and WA need to adopt this positive protection measure and save countless marine animals!
