LAWS TO BAN SINGLE USE PLASTICS

To help bring in World Environment Day, the House of Assembly passed laws to ban the use of single use plastics.


At Australian Green Clean we have been advocating to remove the use of single use plastic entirely at festivals, in work spaces and across our clients sites.


This is an exciting announcement from South Australian premier Steven Marshall. The ban would see products including plastic straws, cutlery and stirrers being banned at first.


What does this mean for those of you who have stock of single use plastic? Use it up sooner rather than later and replenish used stock with compostable alternatives. With a strong focus on a 3 bin system in South Australia, compostable packaging is an excellent way to close the loop and send items to be turned into compost rather than landfill.


This is a great step forward for our environment!
