Last week the Channel 10 program The Project highlighted the impacts of plastic on the environment, calling on the state premiers of NSW, Victoria and Western Australia to ban plastic bags. A recent news article, ‘The harm you’re causing when you accept plastic’, is a great read about the impacts of plastic, and includes a link to an online petition to #BanTheBag in the three states.
One way schools can help reduce the use of plastics is to stop buying the heavy black plastic rubbish bags and replacing these with a Certified compostable or Biobased Biohybrid™ option. Cardia Bioplastics is a new partner with CERES Education to support the ResourceSmart Schools Waste module and provides a range of certified biodegradable and compostable bags, including bin liners.
