LGs offered support to raise awareness of single-use plastics

A nationwide project to reduce single-use plastics from entering landfills and the ocean has been widened to include support for councils.

Plastic Oceans Australasia’s (POA) EPIC Business (community initiative) program will provide support and guidance for councils, community groups and schools.

POA will work with councils to make strategic investments in pre-paying waste avoidance programs (to lock in current rates) and education (for council staff, schools, and community groups)

The program – designed alongside scientists, professors, and teachers – includes resources and educational content tailored for people of all ages to assist in reducing their plastic footprint while encouraging behavioural change for environmental benefits.
