Give the oceans a voice

Plastic bags are only used for 12 minutes on average before they are thrown away. Many of them end up in our beautiful oceans and have deadly consequences on marine life which gets entangled or mistakes them for food.

NSW, Victoria and WA are the only Australian states which haven’t committed to a ban, and, although they say they agree it's needed, they are trying to pass the buck to the Federal Government and local councils. This game has lasted too long - our oceans are drowning in plastic. States have the power to act now.

The Ministers for Environment are meeting end of June and plastic bags will be on their agenda. The next few weeks are critical to increase pressure on the three remaining Governments.

This is our chance to save countless birds, turtles and other marine life!
