How has SCEC been involved?

SCEC has been working with a number of organisations to raise awareness among the community about single-use plastic use and the impact it has on the marine environment. Below are some of the initiatives SCEC have been involved in: 

  • Working with the Boomerang Alliance since 2015 to raise awareness in the community about the benefits of a Container Deposit Scheme and total plastic bag ban through a media stunt at Noosa Main Beach in January 2016.
  • Ensuring World Environment Day (WED) Festival is a single-use-plastic free event! Something we're very proud of!
  • Incorporating plastic into displays, craft workshops and art installations at WED Festival as an informative tool for education. 
  • Incorporating the Unity Water hydration station and reusable drinking canisters for guests at WED Festival.
  • Attending the launch of the Boomerang Alliance Threat Abatement Plan on Marine Plastic. 
  • Speaking on the panel at the Sunshine Coast Council screening of 'A Plastic Ocean.'
  • Writing a submission on the discussion paper on the Waste Reduction and Recycling Amendment Bill 2017.
  • Working with the Plastic Free Noosa campaign team to bring about powerful local change in the community.
