Council encourages community members to give the Plastic Free July challenge a go, and help keep plastic out of landfills and waterways.
Whitehorse Mayor Councillor Bill Bennett said Australia was one of 170 countries taking part in the annual event.
“The organisers of the event offer a great resource list to help us achieve the July goal, from ways to shop for and store food without plastic to how to a live a fully plastic-free life,” Cr Bennett said.
“A great way to start is for all individuals, schools, families, businesses and organisations to say no to single use plastics during July.
“Plastic Free July is such an eye opener to just how much single use plastic we use. Saying no to these products makes us mindful of what we consume and how easily we accept these plastics without thought.”
