Everyone has seen War on Waste by now and is hopefully taking action to avoid single use plastic anything.
So is the City of Sydney. Responding to rising consumer concern about ocean plastics and carbon emitting landfills, it launched an exciting new suite of projects in May this year under its Sustainable Destination Partnership.
One of these projects is a pledge for entertainment and accommodation venues, along with other businesses across the city, to dramatically reduce their use of single-use plastics.
It’s called the Single-use Pledge, and so far more than 50 businesses have taken the dive, including influential names such as the Sydney Opera House, Fox Studios and Star Entertainment Group.
And the list is still growing.
