Australians dump 7,150 plastic bags into landfills every minute, or 429,000 bags every hour.
South Australia, the ACT, Tasmania, and the Northern Territory all have plastic bag bans or reduction schemes in place. Just six months in to the introduction of the South Australian plastic bag ban in 2013, approximately 200 million plastic bags were stopped from entering landfill.
The Victorian Greens are working to ensure that urgent action is taken to prevent plastic pollution becomes and remains a top priority for the government of Victoria.
Join Sam Hibbins MP, Nina Springle MLC and experts from the Port Phiilip Eco Centre to learn about the Vic Greens' Plastic Free Sea campaign and how we can build momentum in Prahran to ban the use of plastic bags.
The forum will include a Q & A session and light refreshments will be provided.
