In just a few short decades, plastic has found its way into almost every part of our lives and into every corner of the planet.

In just a few short decades, plastic has found its way into almost every part of our lives and into every corner of the planet.

The rising tide of plastic pollution is choking, poisoning, and starving our wildlife - and even polluting the food we eat here in Western Australia.

Without action, it is estimated that the plastic in our oceans will outweigh our fish by 2050.

Thankfully, from 1 July this year, single use plastic bags will be banned statewide. The Environment Minister has also indicated that the ban could be extended to other plastic pollution like straws and balloon releases - if there is enough public support.

Now is our chance to show that support. The State Government wants to know how you think the plastic bag ban should be implemented - and what else should be included!

This is one of the best chances we have to address some of our worst plastic pollutants: single use plastic bags, plastic straws, and balloon releases.

The more people that make a submission, the stronger our collective voice will be, so please send your submission now, and ask your friends to do the same!
