Great news from our friends at Market Forces. Both CommBank and Medibank Private have announced plans to begin divesting from fossil fuels. YCAN made written submissions to both companies requesting this action. Thank you to our supporters who have also done so. It is great to see active campaigning achieving results!
A Plastic Free City of Yarra
If you live, work, shop, visit, play or own property in Yarra, petition the Council to help make Yarra Proudly Plastic Free.
Help Make The City Of Yarra Proudly Plastic Free
Help us make the City of Yarra Proudly Plastic Free
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.
We call on Yarra City Council to initiate a Proudly Plastic Free Campaign encouraging food outlets in the City of Yarra to stop using and distributing disposable plastic items, such as bags, bottles, cutlery and packaging.
Also, we pledge that we will preference businesses that display a Proudly Plastic Free Yarra sign.
