Plastic free businesses

Takeaway packaging items made from single-use plastic are the most commonly found litter items on our beaches, in our local parks, streets and transport hubs. Think plastic straws, styrofoam containers, plastic bottles and more. These single-use plastics find their way into our waterways, causing harm to marine life and human health.

Case study: Collaborating with local businesses to reduce plastic

Since 2016, we’ve been working with local businesses through our “Bondi Unwrapped” and “Unwrapping our Futures” programs. In collaboration with local community groups Council has been helping food outlets to reduce excess plastic packaging.

With funding from the NSW EPA, Council has been able to conduct business waste and packaging audits, and invite businesses to forums to share their knowledge.

Funding has also supported local community groups and volunteers to engage with businesses to provide free educational resources such as Procurement Guides, Staff Training Guides and promotional posters to assist businesses in becoming plastic-free, and to share their journey with their customers.
