Historic opportunity to ban plastic bags!
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!
Together we could get a ban on single-use plastic bags along the Australian's east coast! With your help, this issue is now on the agenda of the next Environment Minister meeting on 25 November but we need to keep up the pressure to make sure they take the right decision. In order for this to happen, we need to urgently mobilise and support our 50 allied plastic bag-free groups to put massive pressure on the Environment Ministers to act.
Please chip in today to help us win, it would save countless turtles, whales, birds and other marine life from harm.
