City of Perth joins the fight to reduce plastic pollution


The City of Perth has joined the Western Australian Government and the National Retail Association in preparing Perth businesses for the state-wide plastic bag ban.


Kathleen Ridgwell, Senior Sustainability Officer for the City of Perth, joined our team on the streets of Perth yesterday to see how businesses were transitioning away from plastic bags.

“We’re proud to support the NRA’s Retailer Engagement Program and I’m pleased to see so many Perth businesses taking up great environmental initiatives,” said Kathleen.

Kathleen joined Victor from Zambrero (pictured above, far left) to discuss how their brown paper bags, sustainable cutlery and other plastic reduction measures had received a high level of community support.
