Western Australia to ban single use plastics!

Mark  McGowan our State Premier in WA announced they will ban single-use plastic plates, cutlery, stirrers, straws, thick plastic bags, polystyrene food containers, and helium balloon releases by 2023.

And they won’t stop there. In a second stage (2024-2026), the state will ban single-use plastic barrier/produce bags, microbeads, polystyrene packaging, cotton buds with plastic shafts and oxo-degradable plastics.

This is fantastic news, as consumers we can stop buying them sooner but we are thrilled some systemic changes are happening!!
