WAs Ban On Single-Use Plastics Announced

The Hon Stephen Dawson MLC, alongside Plastic Free July founder Rebecca Prince-Ruiz, recently launched WA’s Plan for Plastics at Perth Zoo.

The Plan, to be developed and implemented between 2021 and 2023, includes a gradual State-wide phase out of single-use plastics including (but not limited to) plastic straws, thick plastic bags, polystyrene food containers, helium balloon releases and micro-beads.

The Plan prioritises avoiding single-use plastics and substituting with reusable alternatives wherever possible.
