Plastic free for you and me! Photo competition

Plastic Free July

Plastic free July is just around the corner! Are you willing to take up the challenge this year?

According to Clean Up Australia, approximately 130,000 tonnes of plastic from Australia washes into stormwater drains and enters our waterways and oceans every year.

We want to see your most creative plastic free idea! How can we reduce the amount of single use plastic waste generated and protect our waterways?

You can enter in 1 of 3 categories – community, business or school. Each category winner will receive a hamper of plastic free solution worth up to $500 in value! In the community category, there will be a first, second and third prize winner.

To enter, fill out your details in the link below and attach a photo of your plastic free idea.
