LOOKING FOR SOME HELP?
Perhaps you'd like to become a Plastic Free Place, or run a trial version of our program. Maybe you're planning to introduce plastic-free policies and are seeking assistance, or you're looking for an on-ground program to help implement your policy. We can help! We are a non-profit so all funds help run our programs.
PLEASE BROWSE OUR SERVICES BELOW. IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN DISCUSSING FURTHER, OR HAVE A DIFFERENT NEED YOU'D LIKE TO DISCUSS, CONTACT US.
PLASTIC FREE PLACES PROGRAM
The Plastic Free Places (PFP) program works in communities to directly reduce single-use plastic packaging and empower lasting changes towards a circular economy.
We directly engage and provide tailored solutions for food retailers, events and markets to eliminate single-use plastics, ensuring that the right partnerships are in place, addressing barriers to transition, and delivering measurable results.
For more information, see our PFP Program page.
For councils looking to gauge what a PFP program may achieve, we can run a trial version. This involves up to 30 food retailers in an identified precinct over a 6-month period. It's also an option for councils to help transition a key area in their community.
Our trials obtain measurable results to help determine what a full program may deliver, and can be used to gauge community and stakeholder views.
For more information, see our Trial Brief for Councils.
To see one of our current trials, visit Plastic Free Elsternwick.
COUNCIL EVENTS POLICY & IMPLEMENTATION
If you'd like to take our Plastic Free Council Events Guidelines further, we can assist with the design and implementation of your plastic-free events policy. Our services include:
A report on plastic-free event policy recommendations and implementation strategies.
Assistance with running an exemplar event under your plastic-free event policy.
COUNCIL OPERATIONS/FACILITIES POLICY & IMPLEMENTATION
We can assist with the design and implementation of plastic-free policies for council operations and facilities. Our services include:
A report on policy recommendations and basic implementation strategies.
A review of practices within your council buildings and facilities, with specific recommendations for change.
On-ground assistance to implement your policy in identified council facilities (library, pool, museum etc).
If your council or organisation is looking to go plastic-free, inspiring your staff and giving them practical tips to reduce plastic in their daily lives and at work is a good place to start.
We can come to your office, do a review of your current practices, and tailor a presentation that shows your staff how they can improve these practices, both in and out of the office.
As an extension to this for councils. we can also meet with your events team and discuss some practical ways to reduce plastic at council-run events.
ONLINE BUSINESS CONSULTATIONS
We can do one-on-one online consultations for businesses to help them transition away from single-use plastics. Through the online platform, businesses are able to show us what items they are using, and we work through with them their best alternatives, taking into account their needs, cost, and how they use the items. We also focus on ways they can avoid, reduce and reuse.
Consultations are 45 minutes, and the service include preliminary research into the local supply chain to identify what suitable alternatives are available to each business.
More information coming soon.
We can assist organisations, franchises, events and universities to go plastic free. Our services include:
A review of current practices and recommendations for changing practices.
A strategy and implementation plan.
Staff training to implement the plan.
We worked with the University of Queensland to help them achieve their UQ Unwrapped program, as well as assisted Grill'd, Raw Energy and RACV Resorts to reduce their plastic footprint.
