Plastic pollution is choking our oceans
Tasmania needs a cash-for-containers scheme now!
Why is Will Hodgman dragging his feet?
Healthy oceans are integral to sustaining life on the planet.
Our beaches, waterways, and roads are covered in rubbish and it’s choking our oceans and wildlife.
Most states have introduced container-deposit-schemes except Victoria and Tasmania.
With a cash-for-containers scheme people would receive a 10c refund for returning bottles and cans for recycling and it will:
Decrease the amount of plastic that ends up in our ocean.
Help our recycling crisis by separating glass, plastic and aluminium when it’s collected.
Return money to individuals and community groups.
