Imagine... being the first community in Australia to go plastic free.
It's an ambitious goal, but what better community than Noosa to achieve this? And with your help, we're getting there. Not only that, but we're inspiring and empowering other communities along the way!
how are we doing it?
Noosa is the pilot community for Boomerang Alliance's Plastic Free Places program. In a nutshell, we work directly with food retailers, events, markets, and other organisations and assist them to switch from single-use plastics to better alternatives.
But... that's just the beginning. We also work with council, suppliers, manufacturers and composters to deliver real solutions to businesses.
And if that's not enough.. we aim to inspire our community (i.e. YOU) to make changes in your own life and support those businesses that do too.
our impact (and counting)
In 2018, we worked with over 100 businesses and eliminated more than 1.6 MILLION single-use plastic items in Noosa. To find out more check out our 2018 Report.
Our current impact in Noosa (as at Nov 1, 2019) is...
*Plastic Free Champions are members that have eliminated all of our key plastic items (straws, coffee cups & lids, takeaway containers & lids, food ware (cutlery, plates, cups etc), water bottles & bags).
