PLASTIC FREE NOOSA FAST FACTS:
In 2017 Noosa was chosen as Queensland’s first pilot community for the Boomerang Alliance’s Communities Taking Control campaign to show how a community could reduce its plastic footprint by inspiring, assisting and empowering the community and local businesses to reduce their use of disposable, single-use plastics, replacing with better environmental alternatives.
The program is supported by Noosa Council and Tourism Noosa
The program has been empowering other communities to follow along the way and the program has now been successfully replicated through the Plastic Free Places program in other tourism towns in Australia.
The Plastic Free Noosa Program is currently working with over 220 businesses and event organisers who are on the journey to become plastic free champions and together have already eliminated over 4.5 million single-use plastic items since the commencement of the program.
