Plasticwise is a grassroots community based movement focused on reducing waste, particularly the amount of plastic ending up in landfill and our oceans.
DISRUPT THE DISPOSABLE CULTURE
Plasticwise represents a rapidly growing network of local plasticwise groups that support and inspire their local community to be plastic and waste wise.
Each plasticwise group is autonomously run and therefore different, but we all share a common goal to work with our community to reduce | reuse | recycle | repair | share. We share ideas for sustainable alternatives to single use, disposable plastics and develop solutions to waste and plastic pollution, working collaboratively with businesses, industry representatives and all levels of government.
