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).

Queensland has already said goodbye to plastic shopping bags and hello to Containers for Change. Now we want to know if you think it’s time to say see-ya-later to single-use plastic products.

Have your say.
