The Queensland Government has announced plans for legislation to phase out certain plastic products.
In the first stage of the phase-out, plastic straws, stirrers, cutlery and plates would not be allowed to be supplied to the public from July 2021.
Wildlife Queensland is calling for members of the public to back this legislation!
The government statement provides four choices to eliminate these plastic products:
- Maintain the status quo
- Ban these products from use
- Implement a statewide education campaign
- Provide more litter collection.
Wildlife Queensland’s position is simply this : BAN THESE PRODUCTS FROM USE!
For more information and to make a submission to support the ban of single use plastics, please visit the Wildlife Queensland website.
Submissions must be lodged by 15 April 2020. You submission counts!
