WHO ARE WE?

Plastic Free Places is run by The Boomerang Alliance. We are a national peak not-for-profit organisation formed in 2003 with the aim of a zero-waste society. We comprise 49 national, state and local allies. 

Over the years, we have worked on projects and campaigns around container deposit schemes, plastic bag bans, e-waste, tyre waste, and microplastics. Our current focus is on plastic pollution, particularly in the marine environment. 

Our core goals as an organisation are:

To transition to a zero-waste society by leveraging strategic opportunities to drive best practice resource efficiency and recovery.

To cut 70% of Australia’s contribution to plastic pollution entering the oceans by 2020.

Primarily a campaigning organisation, we do also run the non-profit Plastic Free Places program to help communities achieve their goals around reducing single-use plastic.
