Further announcements on South Australia’s movement to ban single-use plastics have revealed the first precincts who are taking charge.
In a post on Steven Marshall’s Facebook page, four precincts have been named as initial partners with the South Australian government in instilling the new legislation.
Traders, cafés, restaurants and retailers in the Adelaide Central Market, the Jetty Road Brighton Traders, The Parade (Norwood) and all 21 Surf Life Saving SA clubs, will be phasing out single-use plastics.
These locations will work with Boomerang Alliance, a non-profit organisation that represents 47 environmental groups and local government organisations across Australia in regards to packaging and waste, to go single-use plastic free.
These precincts will also help to inform the implementation of the wider phase-out of single-use plastic items.
The post states that more plastic free precincts are expected to follow shortly, with further announcements to be made.
