Historic opportunity to ban plastic bags in Queensland!
Did you know that 52% of the world's sea turtles have ingested plastic or other human rubbish? Recently the Australian Senate Inquiry into marine plastic pollution warned of a ‘looming health crisis’ from eating seafood and ingesting the bioaccumulation of plastic and adhered toxic chemicals. This has to stop!
We are definitely making progress! Recently, the Queensland Government announced a ban on lightweight single use plastic bags. With your generous help, the plastic bag ban is now well on the way, but we need to keep up the pressure to make sure they make the right decision on the design of the ban. We also need to keep up the pressure in NSW and Victoria to get bans there too, and to make sure all single use plastics is kept on the agenda of governments in all states, to meet our target of a 70% cut in marine plastic pollution by 2020.
Please chip in today to help us win, it would save countless turtles, whales, birds and other marine life from harm.
