The subject of plastic seems overdone, but the reality is we’re far from our goal of removing single-use plastics from our environment. When we look at litter audits across the Mornington Peninsula through groups and individuals, the data shows that while there is a reduction in the number of straws being picked up – thanks to the efforts of businesses switching from plastic to paper – we still have a way to go to be plastic straw-free. But here is how we can make it.

Thanks to National Geographic over the past three years, The Peninsula’s Last Straw – a community advocacy campaign started by volunteers attending a Mornington Peninsula Shire waste reduction workshop with Tangaroa Blue – will now be supported by the incredible work of Waste Wise Mornington Peninsula through the Plastic-Free Places program as part of the Shire’s Beyond Zero Waste plan.

Plastic Free Mornington Peninsula is part of the national Plastic Free Places program run by the Boomerang Alliance, Australia’s peak not-for-profit waste organisation. The aim of the program is to work in communities to reduce the amount of single-use plastic packaging used within that community and empower it to make lasting changes towards supporting a circular economy.

Plastic Free Mornington Peninsula is run by Boomerang Alliance in partnership with Waste Wise Mornington Peninsula. The local co-ordinator of the program, Birte Moliere, said: “Our program is designed to make it easy for local food retailers to transition away from using single-use plastics. We work directly with them, looking at what they’re using and showing them what alternatives are available to them. We can also help them reduce costs associated with switching and offer free promotion. Once they have eliminated the items we’re targeting, we award them the status of ‘Plastic Free Champion’.”

Plastic Free Mornington Peninsula will offer incentives such as business promotion and free samples, including straws, so this is your chance to make the switch and have the support to do it. For more information and to join this pre-launch, please head to www.wastewisepeninsula.org or email Birte at birte.moliere@boomerangalliance.org.au
