2016 has been an extraordinary year for the Boomerang Alliance. Three states (NSW, Qld, WA) and the ACT are now committed to implementing container deposit schemes (CDS), Qld committed to phase out single use plastic bags, a wide scale ban on plastic microbeads in cosmetics and cleaners is being introduced, and we launched Australia’s first Plan to combat Marine Plastic Pollution. Our 2017 plan is no less ambitious. Check out our 2016 Activity Report and 2017 Action Plan.. http://bit.ly/2hNQEWx. Thanks to all our allies, donors and supporters for helping to make this happen!
