how we Support you

we ENGAGE

Our volunteer team engage with local businesses to empower them to reduce their use of disposable plastics and provide information on reusable alternatives, with a preference for locally-sourced options. However, we understand this is not always possible.

A plastic free community is created through the initiative and action of individuals; small businesses and big businesses; council; and community awareness campaigns like ours. If your business is taking plastic free actions and wants to participate in this initiative, please email us!


we PROMOTE

Businesses who commit to removing or reducing disposable plastics will receive a free 'Proudly Plastic Free' promotional toolkit which contains a window sticker and in-store posters so they can promote their plastic free status to the community and visitors. These kits are provided for free, thanks to support from Westernport Water and Phillip Island Nature Parks.

We also promote your business to our community and beyond, through our social media channels, website, community events and local publications.

we support our COMMUNITY

We are creating a plastic free community by inspiring positive change through community events, sharing stories, engaging schools and more.

You'll find us at local events and markets, like the Bass Coast Shire Council’s War on Waste breakfast with legend Craig Reuscassel, the Island Whale Festival, we recently held a sell-out screening of A Plastic Ocean, have facilitated a conversation with Take 3 For The Sea's co-founder and CEO Tim Silverwood, participate in beach cleans and will soon be showing the award-winning ocean conservation film Blue... and much more!
