Is it time to say see-ya-later to single use plastic products?

Plastic pollution is a growing problem and when it ends up in the wrong place, it can negatively impact the health of our communities, our environment, and wildlife.

Single-use plastics are a particular problem and as part of Queensland’s plan to tackle plastic waste, the following products are being considered to be banned from sale or supply in Queensland:

  • straws
  • cutlery
  • plates
  • stirrers (for example, hot and cold drinks).
