Ban the bag
Plastic pollution is killing our marine life. 30% of the world’s turtles and 90% of seabird species have now ingested plastic debris.
One of the serious offenders is plastic bags. Australians use around 4 billion plastic bags every year - that’s a whopping 10 million or so each day. An estimated 50 million of these end up in our waterways and ocean.
We have to act now to clean up our oceans. Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania, the Northern Territory and ACT already have successful plastic bag bans in place. It’s time for New South Wales to step up and take plastic bags off the menu for marine life.
Call on the NSW State Environment Minister to ban plastic bags now. Choose your State's petition below:
