NOTHING FANTASTIC ABOUT PLASTIC!

The monthly FREMANTLE NETWORK event is on tomorrow and it’s all about reducing waste and protecting the environment.

It is at 6 pm upstairs at the National Hotel on Tuesday June 27 and the bar and kitchen are open so stay on for dinner!

Plastic Free July aims to raise awareness of the problems with single-use disposable plastic and challenges people to do something about it. Initiated in 2011 by Freo local Rebecca Prince-Ruiz and the Earth Carers, there are now more than a million people from 130 countries world-wide in making a difference.

As Freo works towards banning plastic bags (again!), local farmers market manager Kylie Wheatley has created ‘Fremantle Boomerang Bags’. Volunteers from all walks of life get together to make re-useable ‘boomerang bags’ using recycled materials, as a means to provide a sustainable alternative to plastic bags. This excellent community initiative is been launched at the Growers Green Markets at South Fremantle High School, just in time for Plastic Free July.

And it’s not just the community but local businesses are getting on board too. Heath and Emma from the Raw Kitchen in Freo have taken on the challenge to reduce plastics and other waste with gusto and are bringing commitment, solutions and innovation to reduce waste in their restaurant, both for their customers and in the kitchen.

Are you part of the War on Waste?
