PLASTIC FREE CHAMPIONS

Our Plastic Free Champions are those businesses in Noosa who have significantly reduced their plastic footprint. This is a real achievement, we set high expectations and don't give Champion status away lightly! 

 

We encourage you to support these businesses and let them know that you appreciate the steps they have taken to protect our environment.
