Ditching ‘Killer’ Plastics: Queensland’s Ban on Single Use Plastics

post-image
Queensland is following the footsteps of South Australia in becoming a greener state. Under new legislation, single use plastics such as straws and cutlery, as well as polystyrene foam food containers and cups will be banned from the 1st of September 2021. The legislation has been endorsed by the Australian Marine Conservation Society, and will be critical in protecting the iconic Australian wildlife. This is an excellent push for the remaining Australian states to also take the positive action to ban plastics which are designed to be used once, and which lastingly destroy the environment.
