Sign the petition: Ban the bag 

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? 

Around 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean every year. We have to act now to clean up our seas. South Australia, Tasmania, the Northern Territory and ACT already have successful plastic bag bans in place. Victoria, Western Australia and Queensland have also committed to banning plastic bags by 2018. It’s time for New South Wales to step up and take plastic bags off the menu for marine life.

Sign the petition and call on the State Environment Minister of NSW to ban plastic bags now.

IT'S TIME TO BAN THE BAG 

HOW WILL IT BE DELIVERED?

Your name will be delivered to the relevant State Environment Minister in order to show them just how many people want a ban on single-use plastic bags.

To State Environment Ministers: Plastic pollution is killing our marine life. 30% of the world’s turtles and 90% of seabird species have now ingested plastic debris.

One of the serious offenders is plastic bags. Australians use around 4 billion plastic bags every year - that’s a whopping 10 million or so each day.

Clean Up Australia estimates that around 150 million of these end up in our waterways and ocean.
