Yarra Climate Action Now – YCAN

Help us achieve a sustainable and safe future for Yarra, Melbourne and the world!

Sign our petition to help make the City of Yarra Proudly Plastic Free

This petition is now closed.

Plastic is an environmental nightmare. Manufacture of plastics produces greenhouse gas. Plastic waste leaches toxins into our waterways. Toxins from plastics can end up in our food chain. Recycling reduces the problem but the best strategy is to not use plastic in the first place.

YCAN is calling on Yarra City Council to initiate a Proudly Plastic Free campaign to encourage food outlets in Yarra to stop supplying disposable plastic items such as bags, bottles, cutlery and packaging.

Sign our petition to the Council now and pledge to preference businesses that display a Proudly Plastic Free Yarra sign.

YCAN will add your name and email to an aggregated Help Make Yarra Proudly Plastic Free petition and present it to the City of Yarra Council in 2018.
