PFL is a working group of Tamar NRM. Working to reduce single use plastics.
Businesses, community groups, schools and individuals can reach out to request a workshop/ information session.
Each day single use plastics (used once than thrown away - plastic straws, water bottles, bags, take- away food containers and cling wrap, to name a few) are disposed of into landfill or make their way into land and marine ecosystems. Apart from visual pollution along our roads and waterways, plastics also cause long term environmental problems as they break down into smaller and smaller pieces.
A lot of plastics are not recycled and many plastics bags, purported to be degradable or bio-degradable, either simply break down into smaller plastics pieces or require more than your back yard compost to decompose them.
Plastic Free Launceston asks you to take responsibility for this material that will be around long after we are gone. When shopping, ask for an alternative, choose an alternative and use an alternative to help change behaviours that rid the planet of useless single use plastics.
