33. Empowering Noosa to reduce single-use plastics for a cleaner future, with Kellie and Chad from Plastic Free Noosa.
Plastic Free Noosa is a whole-of-community plan to reduce Noosa's plastic footprint. This year, they have set an aspirational goal to reduce the use of identified single-use plastic packaging in Noosa by 50% by November 2018.
To achieve this, Plastic Free Noosa engages directly with food outlets, events, markets, and other organisations to switch from single-use plastics to better alternatives. To make this plan manageable, Plastic Free Noosa are initially targeting six single-use plastic items which represent the most problematic and prolific sources of the litter stream. The identified items are; plastic bottles, plastic food ware, plastic straws, plastic bags, plastic coffee cups/lids and plastic takeaway containers.
